Auburn and Oregon are set to play in Arlington, Texas this evening in the biggest game of college football's Week 1 slate. It's the only game between ranked teams on the Week 1 schedule.

The contest, set to be played at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, was supposed to have a fairly even split of fan bases. Flight problems for Auburn fans could help give Oregon the benefit, though.

Bad weather has caused for a lot of flights out of Atlanta into Dallas Fort-Worth to get cancelled or delayed.

Auburn fans aren't happy.

Auburn's football team reportedly had a tough time getting into Dallas, too. "Unless Auburn is game for a late-night walkthrough at AT&T Stadium, it appears the first time the Tigers see Jerry World will be tomorrow against Oregon," Brandon Marcello reported on Friday night.

Auburn and Oregon are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on ABC.
