ATLANTA (AP) -- The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will be a doubleheader in 2012.
Officials announced Saturday that Auburn will face Clemson in a season-opening game at the Georgia Dome, joining a previously announced contest between Tennessee and N.C. State. Specific times and dates for the two games have not been determined.
Chick-fil-A Bowl president Gary Stokan says having two games on the opening weekend "will create a kickoff experience that's never been seen before." The announcement came hours before Auburn hosted Clemson in the first of a home-and-home series.
LSU defeated North Carolina in this year's kickoff game.
