The Auburn Tigers are among college football's most elite and storied programs, and you don't get a seat at that kind of table without earning it over sustained periods of success against a wide variety of opponents.

With countless player and coaching talents passing through The Plains for the better part of the last century, one would think the Tigers have pulled at least one over each of their opponents somewhere down the line. Keeping that in mind, here's a look at the full list of FBS opponents Auburn has surprisingly never beaten.
