Kansas State associate athletic director Jim Epps confirmed this morning that the game will be played on Sept. 1, and will be televised by ESPN.
The last time K-State played Auburn was in the opener to the 1979 season when K-State lost, 26-18. The last time KSU played a team from the SEC in a non-conference regular-season game was in the opener to the 1984 season when K-State lost at Vanderbilt, 26-14.
The rest of the 2007 non-conference schedule will have San Jose coming to Manhattan on Sept. 8 and Missouri State on Sept. 15.
"We're currently working with Missouri State to get a game they had scheduled with Sam Houston (on the 15th) rescheduled," Epps said.
The final non-Big 12 game will be against Fresno State and will be moved to the last game of the year on Nov. 24, in Fresno, Calif.
This lineup will allow K-State to have an open date prior to the start of Big 12 play at Texas on the final Saturday in September.
Epps said that the 2008 non-conference schedule had been set with K-State opening at home against Louisiana-Lafayette, followed by a home game with Fresno State. Also on the slate will be a road game at Louisville and a home date with North Texas.
