The Florida State Seminoles and the Boise State Broncos have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2019 and 2020, both schools announced today.
Florida State will host the first game of the series at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Sept. 7, 2019. The second and final game of the series will take place at Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho on Sept. 12, 2020.
This is the second future home-and-home series that Boise State has scheduled against an ACC team. Last week, the Broncos announced a 2015 & 2017 series against the Virginia Cavaliers.
Boise State is the second scheduled non-conference game for the Seminoles for both the 2019 and 2020 seasons. FSU also visits in-state rival Florida in 2019 and then hosts the Gators in 2020.
As for the Broncos, they are slated to travel to BYU in 2019 and host the Cougars in 2020.
Boise State is 1-1 against the ACC after falling to Boston College 27-21 in the 2005 MPC Computers Bowl and then defeating Virginia Tech 33-30 in 2010. Florida State is 1-4 against the MWC (current members), but haven’t played a current member from that conference since 1977.
“We are very excited to add Boise State to our future football schedule,” said Florida State Director of Athletics Randy Spetman. “Boise State has an excellent football program and we feel this will be an out of conference game that will be exciting for fans of both schools and appealing to TV networks.
“Adding the Broncos to our football schedule continues our commitment to bringing top quality opponents to Doak Campbell Stadium. With our neutral site game versus Oklahoma State in 2014, the addition of Pitt and Syracuse to the ACC and now this series, we feel we are putting our football program in the best possible position to compete in the new BCS beginning in 2014.”
“Scheduling a home-and-home series against a perennial top-25 program like Florida State is another step in growing our football program,” Boise State Director of Athletics Mark Coyle stated. “Florida State is a team fans talk about when discussing the top collegiate programs in the country and I know Bronco Nation will be excited about hosting a team like Seminoles in Boise.”
