TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State football team’s unprecedented run of success has led to an unprecedented piece of history.
FSU announced Friday that tickets for next week’s Boston College game have officially sold, giving the Seminoles a full-season sell out for the first time since expanding Doak Campbell Stadium to 82,300 seats in 2003.
“We would like to thank our fans who loyally support our team and coaching staff,” said FSU Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox. “The charged atmosphere in Doak Campbell Stadium this year has provided a tremendous boost to the players on the field and our University community as a whole.”
The Boston College game will be one for Seminoles fans to remember.
Not only will senior stars like Rashad Greene, Nick O’Leary and Cameron Erving participate in Senior Day festivities, but FSU will also welcome back one of its most storied legends.
Burt Reynolds, the famed actor who played football at Florida State before making his way to Hollywood, will plant the spear at midfield prior to kickoff.
Reynolds was elected to the FSU Hall of Fame in 1977 and earned an Academy Awards nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 1997.
“We are excited to have a packed stadium for BC to not only honor Seminole legend Burt Reynolds, but also to officially recognize an outstanding senior class that helped bring FSU its third national championship,” Wilcox said.
