Auburn adds Mercer to 2025 schedule

Auburn football has rounded out its 2025 schedule by adding an FCS program to the docket.

It was announced Thursday that Auburn will face Mercer in November 2025, rounding out its nonconference slate. Auburn will also play Ball State and South Alabama at Jordan-Hare Stadium as part of its non-SEC schedule and will travel to Waco, Texas to battle Baylor in the season opener on Aug. 30.

Next season’s meeting will be the 14th overall between the Tigers and Bears dating back to the days of the old Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. These two teams played 11 times from 1896 to 1922, and have played twice since Mercer re-instated its football program in 2014.

Auburn last faced Mercer in 2022, winning, 42-16. The Tigers jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the 2nd quarter before Mercer ended the shutout with a late 2nd quarter touchdown. Jarquez Hunter and Tank Bigsby each scored a touchdown in the second half to secure the win.

Auburn is 13-0 all-time vs. Mercer.
