Tallahassee, Fla. –
Florida State fans nationwide will have the opportunity to watch the Seminoles make their first ever trip to Boulder to face Colorado live on ESPN. The game between the Seminoles and Buffaloes was picked up by the network Tuesday and is scheduled for a 10:00 p.m. EST kickoff.
This is the third Seminole game that has been scheduled to be shown nationally by ESPN. The Seminoles will kick-off their season for the third straight year on Labor Day weekend at Clemson. That game will also be televised across the country on ESPN. FSU will also play a night road game on ESPN when the Seminoles travel to Winston-Salem on a Thursday to face defending ACC Champion Wake Forest.
Last season four of FSU’s 13 games were shown on ESPN and the Seminoles have now appeared on ESPN’s flagship channel 52 times in 22 years. The two games ESPN is set to televise in 2007 mark the fifth and sixth straight games where FSU has played a night game on the network. All four Florida State games in 2006 that were televised on the network were played in the evening. The last time the Seminoles played during the day on ESPN was in 2005 when Florida State and Clemson played at noon.
With ESPN’s decision to televise the Colorado game, two of FSU’s first three games in 2007 are already set to be seen from coast-to-coast. For more information on Seminole football, log on to the official athletic website for Florida State University at www.seminoles.com.
