2022 football schedule announced
TALLAHASSEE, Florida. – The 2022 Florida State football schedule was announced Monday night live on the ACC Network. The program features seven opportunities to showcase the pageantry and excitement of Doak Campbell Stadium, plus a trip to New Orleans as part of three non-Saturday primetime kickoffs.
“It’s a good schedule, and we’re excited to have our seven home games going through the fall,” said FSU vice president and athletic director Michael Alford. “Hosting primetime Florida on Fridays during the Thanksgiving holiday allows us to showcase this great rivalry and our community on a day that has historically drawn huge viewership. It also gives us the ability to lock down a night game, which allows fans to make plans well in advance and avoids the potential of the six-day network television option at kickoff.
The Seminoles kick off the season on August 27, hosting Duquesne in a Week 0 game. The date marks Florida State’s first game played at Doak Campbell Stadium and the third-longest game in program history. FSU played BYU in Jacksonville on August 26, 2000 and played Iowa State in Kansas City, Missouri on August 24, 2002.
For only the second time, and the first since 1955, FSU has three non-Saturday games in the regular season. Florida State’s first non-Saturday game is Sunday in prime time over Labor Day weekend against LSU in New Orleans. The Seminoles and Tigers last met in 1991, and Florida State holds a 7-2 lead in the all-time series. After an open date, Florida State opens ACC play Friday night, Sept. 16, in Louisville.
The Fresh from Florida Sunshine Showdown has also been guaranteed a spot in prime time the day after Thanksgiving, as FSU hosts the Gators on Friday, November 25. This year will mark only the second time the teams have met in the regular season on a non-Saturday. The 1979 game also took place on Friday, and Florida State won that game 27-16 in Gainesville to end a regular season 11-0.
Following Friday night’s game in Louisville, Florida State begins a four-of-five home series, returning to host Boston College on September 24 and Wake Forest on October 1. The Seminoles next play at North Carolina State on October 1. 8 before hosting Clemson on October 15 and Georgia Tech on October 29.
November includes two ACC road games and two other non-conference games at home. Florida State takes on local rival Miami at Hard Rock Stadium on Nov. 5, then heads north to take on Syracuse on Nov. 12. On Nov. 19, the Seminoles host Louisiana, then the FSU wraps up the regular season Friday night. against Florida.
