The Auburn–Clemson football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Auburn Tigers and Clemson Tigers.

Series history[edit]

The rivalry began in 1899 and was played almost annually up until 1929. It was renewed in 1940 on an annual basis until 1955, with only a three-year break from 1943–45 for World War II. After that, the series became much more intermittent. They have faced each other in two bowl games; the 1998 Peach Bowl and the 2007 Chick-fil-A Bowl.
