Louisville, Auburn to open 2015 season in Chick-fil-A Kickoff
Louisville and Auburn will open the 2015 regular season in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
As I write this post we are literally only a couple hours away from the start of the 2013 college football season. So it only seems appropriate to talk about the beginning of the 2015 season, right?
Well, we're going to anyway.
"The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game has an outstanding tradition of putting together great match-ups, and facing Auburn in this type of event is great for our program and university," said Louisville coach Charlie Strong in a release. "We look forward to opening the 2015 season against a great SEC opponent like Auburn. I'm very excited for our fans that will get the opportunity to be a part of a great game and an exciting atmosphere. The exposure our football players and our program will get from a match-up like this is tremendous as we continue to build this program, and it is going to be a great experience for our fans."
“We are really looking forward to playing in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game to open the 2015 season,” said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn. “It will be a great opportunity for us to play on a national stage to kick off the college football season against a very good Louisville program. We love playing in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome in front of our fans who live in the area or who can make the short drive to see Auburn play in a first-class event.”
This game will be the second time Louisville and Auburn have met on the field, with Auburn winning the previous matchup 16-3 in 1974.
