Tech-Auburn Game Slated for ESPN

June 13, 2005

ATLANTA–Georgia Tech’s season-opening football game Sept. 3 at Auburn will be nationally televised on ESPN and will kick off at 8:45 p.m. ET at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

The announcement means that Tech’s first two games of 2005 will be televised. Following the Sept. 3 opener at Auburn, the Jackets’ Sept. 10 home opener against North Carolina will air on ABC with a 3:30 p.m. start at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field.

The Tech-Auburn game is one of two ESPN dates in the season’s first five weeks for the Yellow Jackets. Tech hosts NC State on Oct. 6 at 7:30 p.m. as part of ESPN’s popular Thursday night package.

The Tech-Auburn rivalry is one of the South’s oldest, dating back to 1892, with the Tigers holding a 47-40-4 advantage. The two teams last met in 2003, when Tech knocked off the 17th-ranked Tigers, 17-3, at Bobby Dodd Stadium/Grant Field.

One of just eight schools in the nation to play in a bowl game each of the last eight years, Tech is coming off a 7-5 record in 2004, capped by a 51-14 victory over Syracuse in the Champs Sports Bowl. Auburn, national runner-up in 2004, has won 15 straight games, including a 13-0 mark last fall.
