Tallahassee, Fla. – Florida State and Boise State will play a home-and-home football series set for 2019 and 2020 the schools announced on Monday. This will be the first-ever meetings between the football programs and the games are scheduled to be played September 7, 2019 in Tallahassee and September 12, 2020 in Boise, Idaho.
“We are very excited to add Boise State to our future football schedule,” said Florida State Director of Athletics Randy Spetman. “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 been one of the most successful BCS football programs over the last 11 seasons. The Broncos have finished in the top-20 of the Associated Press poll nine times during that span and won nine conference titles since 2002. Over that nine-year period the Broncos have produced a record of 129-15 (.896), appeared in 11 consecutive bowl games and won seven of those postseason contests.
Current Boise State head coach Chris Petersen is 84-8 since taking over the Boise State program in 2006.
