Nevada may cancel their 2013 football game against Florida State, FSU athletic director Randy Spetman said on Thursday.
Florida State is currently slated to host Nevada at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Sept. 21, 2013. The game, which has been on the schedule since 2005, would be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Nevada may cancel the game in order to make more money elsewhere. “They have an opportunity to play somebody else for more money, like we all do,” Spetman told reporters.
If Nevada does cancel the game, Spetman says they would owe the Seminoles $600,000. The Wolf Pack would be the second team to remove themselves from Florida State’s 2013 football schedule. West Virginia canceled both games of a 2012-13 home-and-home series earlier this year.
Florida State is tentatively set to open the 2013 season at home vs. Wofford on Aug. 31 and will travel to Florida on Nov. 30. Since the ACC is moving to a nine-game conference schedule, teams will only play three non-conference games.
