Auburn passes on UCLA game in 2010

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Offered a chance to face UCLA in 2010 in a made-for-TV game at the Georgia Dome, Auburn said no thanks.

Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs said the Tigers already have a full schedule in 2010, and he wasn't willing to give up a home game. He did say they had an opening in 2012 and would love to play the Bruins then.

The game would have been televised by ABC/ESPN.

Auburn begins a home-and-home series with Clemson in 2010, which was another reason Jacobs passed. Auburn plays at home against Clemson in 2010 and then travels to Clemson in 2011.
