Florida State and Boise State announced Monday a home-and-home football series that will take place during the 2019 and 2020 seasons. The first meeting is scheduled for Sept. 7, 2019 in Tallhassee. The Seminoles will then pay a visit to Boise on Sept. 12, 2020. "We are very excited to add Boise State to our future football schedule," said Florida State Director of Athletics Randy Spetman via statement. "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." Boise State has rocketed to prominence over the past decade, finishing in the top 20 of the AP poll nine times since 2002. Since 1997, the Broncos, noted for the blue home turf, have an overall mark of 168-35 (.828) and claim the best home winning percentage in college football since 2000 with a 79-4 record (.952). "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 said via press release. "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."
