The Washington State contest has a 6 p.m. CT kickoff and will be televised by ESPNU.

The 1988 Tigers, co-champions of the SEC, will be honored at the September 7 home game against Arkansas State. Coached by Pat Dye, Auburn posted a 10-2 record that season and faced Florida State in the Sugar Bowl. Auburn finished ranked No. 7 in the nation. The Arkansas State game will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. CT and be televised by FSN.

The 1963 Auburn squad will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the Homecoming game versus Western Carolina October 12. Posting a 9-2 record under Coach Ralph "Shug" Jordan, the '63 Tigers, who finished No. 5 in the national rankings, faced Nebraska in the Orange Bowl.

The 1983 Tigers, who won Auburn's first SEC championship since 1957, will celebrate their 30th anniversary at the Florida Atlantic game October 26. Posting an 11-1 record and going 6-0 in SEC play, the '83 Auburn squad defeated Michigan 9-7 in the Sugar Bowl to finish No. 3 in most of the national polls.
