Auburn made a pair of scheduling announcements Monday afternoon on social media.

The football team revealed a kickoff time of 1 p.m. program’s annual A-Day game on April 8. It also set homecoming for Sept. 16, which is a matchup against Mercer.

The dates are the earliest for both events during coach Gus Malzahn’s tenure.

This is only the second time in five years Auburn is holding its homecoming in September. Last year’s spring game on April 9 was the earliest it had been for Malzahn.

Auburn opens spring practice on Feb. 28.
