After Saturday night's bloodbath in Jordan-Hare Stadium, many of us will need about two years before we'll be able to stomach another Clemson-Auburn game. Especially since nobody wore blue helmets.

Chick Fil A announced the teams will meet again in Atlanta as part of a doubleheader with N.C. State-Tennessee. It will be their third showdown in five years and second in the Dome after meeting in the 2008 Chick Fil A Bowl.

Presumably this game will be the Labor Day game, with the other taking place Saturday night and College Football Hall of Fame inductions Sunday night.

So 2012 is all lined up, but 2011 is still being arranged. Georgia Tech is considering 2011, 2014, and 2015, while Georgia is also in discussions. The two could even meet in week one, to Kyle King's delight.
