The stellar non-conference matchups keep coming.

Auburn will play Oregon to open the 2019 season in the Cowboys Classic, a rematch of the 2010 National Championship game, won by the Tigers 22-19.

Here’s the Cowboys Classic games, which are played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for the next five years:

2015 — Alabama vs. Wisconsin
2016 — Southern Cal vs. Alabama
2017 — Michigan vs. Florida
2018 — LSU vs. Miami
2019 — Auburn vs. Oregon

LSU defeated Oregon 40-27 in the 2011 game.

“An invitation to participate on a stage likes this speaks to the reputation Oregon football has earned, and we’re excited to be part of such a prestigious matchup,” Oregon AD Rob Mullens said in a statement.

“I’m thrilled that Auburn will face Oregon in an epic match-up of two elite programs on a big stage to open the 2019 season,” Auburn AD Jay Jacobs said in a statement. “I know how much it means to our players to have an opportunity to play in high-profile games; it is one reason they choose to come to Auburn. I’m also happy for the Auburn family, the best fans in college football. They always travel in masses to support our program, so this is a great reward for them as well.”
