According to reports originating from other schools, Clemson will play Georgia State in football in 2014 and will face Auburn in men's basketball sometime during the 2013-14 season.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last week that Georgia State will play at Death Valley next year, part of an ambitious schedule for the Panthers as they establish themselves at the FBS level.

Georgia State will reportedly receive $700,000 for visiting Clemson. The Panthers are already scheduled to play at Washington in September, 2014, for $900,000, and to face Air Force at home as part of a home-and-home agreement.

Georgia State, which is entering its first season under coach Trent Miles, will play at West Virginia and Alabama this fall for guarantees totaling $1.25 million, according to the AJC. The Panthers will also play at Oregon in 2015.

Meanwhile, Al.com is reporting that Auburn and Clemson have agreed to a home-and-home basketball series the next two seasons, with Clemson visiting Auburn in 2013-14.

Auburn coach Tony Barbee announced the matchup during the SEC's summer coaches' teleconference on Monday.

Who is Ga State replacing? I think they will be FBS by then - would probably take place of Central Michigan. Is this right?

That seems to be the case. Central Michigan was believed to be a casualty of the former nine-game schedule makeup.
