Dear Seminoles fan,
ACC RELEASES FLORIDA STATE’S 2007 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE
January 24, 2007
Greensboro, NC – The Atlantic Coast Conference released 2007 football schedules for all 12 league schools on Wednesday including Florida State’s, which features the season-opener at Clemson on Labor Day night.
Florida State will have five home games in 2007, but will play a neutral site game against Alabama at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville on September 29th. In addition to the Crimson Tide, the Seminoles will play non-conference opponents UAB, at home, and Colorado and Florida on the road.
The Seminoles, who are in the ACC’s Atlantic Division, will again play three teams from the Coastal Division in 2007. Miami and Duke are FSU’s permanent opponents from the other division and in 2007 the Seminoles will play Virginia Tech in the regular season for the first time since the Hokies joined the league. Virginia Tech replaces Virginia from last year’s schedule in the ACC opponent spot that will rotate through the years.
“This is probably one of the most difficult schedules we have had since we joined the ACC,” said FSU Head Coach Bobby Bowden. “It will be the first time we’ve had Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College on our schedule at the same time.
“We’ve got Alabama, Florida, Colorado and UAB out of conference with only UAB at home. The schedule will be a tough, but we will work to be ready for the challenge. There is not doubt that if we have success with this schedule we will be back where we belong.”
The ACC will announce game times and television information at a later date.
