The Bulls won 17-7 in 2009 at Tallahassee.The Seminoles won 30-17 in Tampa last season.Weve been workingcollaboratively on extending the series between USF and FSU for some time,South Florida athletic director Doug Woolard said. The two previous gamesprovided such great atmospheres for both of our fan bases that it was importantfor us to extend the series.When Florida State played atTampa in September, there was an intense demand for tickets. Many Seminoles fans bought South Florida season tickets just to secure a seat forthe FSU-USF game, which was played before a record Bulls crowd of 69,383.For all the Seminole fansthroughout Central Florida, this is a great opportunity to once again see theirteam play in an NFL facility, Florida State athletic director Randy Spetmansaid. The last time we played in Raymond James versus USF the atmosphere wasexcellent and the excitement generated among our fan base was unmatched.Florida State coach JimboFisher is 6-1 against teams from the state of Florida, going 3-0 against Miami,2-1 vs. Florida and 1-0 vs. South Florida.Were excited to have USFback on the schedule, Fisher said. Its been a good series thus far, and itsgreat for our fans to have another in-state series on the schedule.
