It's the battle of the Tigers as Auburn and Clemson square off to open the 2012 college football season on Saturday night in the fifth annual Chick-fil-A kickoff game. This is the third year in a row that these two teams have met on the gridiron.
In 2010, Auburn was led by current Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton as they won the matchup 27-24. Last year, Clemson emerged victorious, 38-24. Both of those games were intense and this one should certainly be no different, especially with both teams dealing with suspensions and new on-field schemes.

Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Ga.
Radio: WWCP 104.9 FM (Clemson), WNSP 105.5 FM (Auburn)
