Auburn and Clemson renew their football rivalry with a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2017, the schools announced Wednesday.

Auburn will host Clemson at Jordan Hare Stadium on Sept. 3, 2016. The two teams will meet at Memorial Stadium in Clemson on Sept. 9, 2017.

The two football teams have met 49 times since 1899, with Auburn holding a 34-13-2 advantage. They last met in 2012 when Clemson took a season-opening 26-19 win in Atlanta. Auburn won 14 straight before Clemson picked up wins in 2011 and 2012.

For Auburn, the game fulfills the Southeastern Conference mandate to play at least one non-conference game against a Power 5 conference team. This will mark the seventh time in eight seasons that Clemson will play two SEC teams. Clemson plays rival South Carolina to end each season.
