Florida State Announces 1998 Football Schedule


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University released its 1998 football
schedule on Monday and it features six home games along with a tentative
preseason contest.



“I think the general consensus is that our 1998 football schedule could
be the best one we’ve ever played as it relates to the games in
Tallahassee,” said FSU Director of Athletics Dave Hart. “We’re currently
negotiating to play in a pre-season game late in August which could only
add to the attractiveness of our schedule. I am also very confident that
we will have some night games at home this year which will be exciting for
our fans.”



Florida State finished ranked No. 3 in both polls this season after
posting its 11th straight season of 10 or more wins. The Seminoles
defeated Ohio State 31-14 in the 1998 Nokia Sugar Bowl to post an 11-1
record in 1997.
