The Florida State Seminoles are looking to schedule neutral-site games against Alabama and Auburn, according to a report by Tomahawk Nation.
The Florida State-Alabama game, if it materializes, would be a Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in 2017 at the new Atlanta Falcons Stadium. FSU last faced Alabama in Jacksonville in 2007, a game in which they won 21-14 but later vacated due to NCAA sanctions.
Alabama currently leads the overall series against Florida State 2-0-1. Each of those games were played prior to 1975.
Last summer, the AJC reported that a Georgia Tech-Tennessee matchup in 2017 in Atlanta was nearly set. It’s possible that Georgia Tech-Tennessee and Florida State-Alabama could both be played, as the Chick-fil-A Kickoff has had dual matchups in the past.
Tomahawk Nation also reports, per a source, that Florida State could meet Auburn in 2019 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.
Florida State and Auburn have squared off 19 times, most recently in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena. The two also met in the 1989 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, but have never faced each other at a neutral site during regular-season play.
Auburn leads the series against FSU 13-5-1 and has claimed four of the last five meetings.
Florida State has openings for both neutral-site games in 2017 and 2019. Currently, they are slated to visit Florida both seasons and also host Boise State in 2019.
Alabama has a lone game scheduled for 2017, a Sept. 16 home tilt against Colorado State.
Auburn has no non-conference games announced for the 2019 season.
The Seminoles opened the 2014 season with a neutral-site win over Oklahoma State at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. FSU is also scheduled to face Ole Miss at Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium to open the 2016 season.
