The road to a second consecutive SEC regular-season championship is starting to take shape for Auburn.

After going wire-to-wire atop the league last season, Auburn found out its opponents for its 18-game SEC schedule for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday, as the SEC announced matchups for all 14 teams in the league. Dates and times for the full SEC schedule will be revealed at a later date, but for now, teams at least know which SEC opponents they will see next season.

Auburn will have home-and-home series against Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M next season. The other eight SEC games will include home games against Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi State and Missouri at Neville Arena, as well as road matchups against Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

The announcement of Auburn’s opponents for the 18-game SEC slate brings further clarity to the Tigers’ full schedule for next season. On top of league games, Auburn has nine nonconference games currently set for 2022-23.

The Tigers will open the season at home against George Mason on Nov. 7 before hosting USF at Neville Arena on Nov. 11. Winthrop then visits the Plains on Nov. 15 as part of the on-campus portion of the Cancun Challenge before Auburn heads to Mexico for a Nov. 22 matchup with Bradley in the nonconference showcase, followed by a Nov. 23 meeting with either Northwestern or Liberty.

Upon returning from Cancun, Auburn will host Saint Louis on Nov. 27 -- a rare Sunday home game that will come the day after the Iron Bowl during Thanksgiving weekend -- before it embarks on a two-game West Coast road swing. Auburn will visit USC in Los Angeles on Dec. 18 and then travel to Seattle to face Washington on Dec. 21.

Auburn will then face West Virginia on the road on Jan. 28, taking a brief break in conference play for the annual Big 12/SEC Challenge.
