TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State’s first-ever spring game under new head coach Willie Taggart will honor the past, great Seminole teams and players while showcasing the future direction of the program. The game, slated for April 14 at 6:00 p.m., will mark the first time since 2007 that Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium will feature end zones painted as they were during both the 1993 and 1999 National Championship seasons.

“We have so many plans to honor the unmatched history of Florida State football at this year’s spring game,” said Associate A.D. for New Revenue Generation and Marketing Jason Dennard. “One of the most exciting is the announcement about the end zones. The same design that was utilized during the first two National Championship seasons and the dominate decade of the 90’s will be back for the first time in over a decade.”
The announcement about the end zone design is just one of a number of tributes that are scheduled throughout the weekend. More throwback plans will be detailed as the game gets closer. Fans are encouraged to join in the retro spirit with their game-day gear.
Following the game, the I Love the 90’s Tour will stop in Tallahassee for an in-stadium concert with Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice and Rob Base to continue the throwback theme. The post-game celebration also includes fireworks after the concert.

In addition to the general admission tickets, Champions Club tickets also are on sale. All tickets can be purchased at Seminoles.com in advance.
