After several long months of waiting, college football is almost back. With the upcoming season approaching very soon, ESPN's College GameDay made an important announcement.

College GameDay covers one matchup each week of the season on that particular campus. It's an opportunity for fans to show their school pride leading up to the game.

This year's edition of College GameDay will kick off with a fantastic showdown. Although there are several marquee games on the schedule for the first week, ESPN went with a non-conference matchup that'll take place at a neutral site.

ESPN announced that its crew will be in Texas for the Advocare Classic between Auburn and Oregon.

It's possible that the Ducks and Tigers steal the show on Week 1.

The official announcement came from College GameDay's Twitter account.

Auburn and Oregon should be evenly matched to start the college football season. Both programs should be ranked inside the top 25 starting in August.

Whichever team falls short in this contest will most likely see their hopes of making the College Football Playoff disappear.

Kickoff for the Auburn-Oregon matchup is at 7:30 p.m. ET from AT&T Stadium.
