NC State revealed today that they have agreed to a Home-Home series with Auburn in Men’s basketball.

The Tigers will visit PNC Arena on Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018 and the Pack will travel to Auburn in the 2019-20 season.

Last season the Tigers finished the season 26-8, and 13-5 in the SEC. Bruce Pearl helped lead Auburn to the SEC regular season title.

The Tigers were young in 2017-18, with no Seniors on their roster, but still managed to make it to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Auburn finished the season ranked 23rd in the final poll.

Auburn looks to be a force to be reckoned with next season. In the Sporting News Way-too-Early 2018-19 Preseason Poll, they ranked the Tigers #11. CBS ranks them #9 in theirs.

NC State leads the all-time series with Auburn, 5-3. The two teams last met on Nov. 22, 2009 when NC State defeated Auburn, 60-58, in the Glenn Wilkes Classic.
