AUBURN - Auburn baseball will restart a series that has been played more than 100 times with a home-and-home series against Georgia Tech in 2015.
The Tigers will travel to Atlanta on Tuesday, March 24, for a game scheduled at 5 p.m. CT before hosting the Yellow Jackets on Wednesday, April 29 at 6 p.m. CT in Plainsman Park.
“With the timing of coming in new last year, we were not able to add many games to the schedule,” Auburn head coach Sunny Golloway said. “This was our first opportunity to add a quality opponent from the region like Georgia Tech. We are excited to get them back on the schedule and look forward to adding similar programs in the future.”
Auburn holds the all-time advantage 59-42-1 in the series that dates back to the beginning of the modern era of the program in 1949. The two programs last met in 2005 with Auburn taking a 7-6 win on the road and falling 3-2 at home.
The series with Georgia Tech joins previously announced home SEC series with Vanderbilt (March 17-21) as well as rivals Georgia (April 24-26) and Alabama (May 8-10). Auburn also hosts Arkansas (April 3-5) and Ole Miss (April 17-19) in SEC play.
The remainder of the 2015 schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
