As far as college football’s offseason dates go, this is a pretty big one. Later today, we’ll learn what Florida State’s 2019 football schedule entails, along with the slates of every other program in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Of course, we already know some specifics of the Seminoles’ schedule; here’s what we can fill in so far:
- Saturday, August 31: Boise State Broncos (Jacksonville, FL)
- Saturday, September 7: Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks (Tallahassee, FL)
- Saturday, September 14:
- Saturday, September 21:
- Saturday, September 28:
- Saturday, October 5:
- Saturday, October 12:
- Saturday, October 19:
- Saturday, October 26:
- Saturday, November 2:
- Saturday, November 9:
- Saturday, November 16:
- Saturday, November 23:
- Saturday, November 30: Florida Gators (Gainesville, FL)
- Saturday, December 7: ACC Championship Game (Charlotte, NC)
We’ve temporarily filled each weekend with a Saturday placeholder, since that’s when most games take place, but of course, part of the fun of a new schedule is seeing if the Seminoles wind up with any of those tricky ACC Thursday or Friday night games, as well as when the all-important bye week is scheduled (although it looks like Florida State will score a pair of bye weeks this season, given nine games left to enter across 11 weekends).
We are aware of which ACC teams FSU will face, and where:
- Home: Louisville, Miami, NC State, and Syracuse
- Away: Boston College, Clemson, Virginia, and Wake Forest
We also know that the ’Noles will host Alabama State— but as with the conference games listed above, we just don’t know when, as of yet. Be sure to check back with this post, as we’ll fill in the blanks when the schedule is released (or leaked ahead of time, which has been the case in the past) later today.
And after the schedule is out, continue to stick around Tomahawk Nation, as we’ll analyze how the gauntlet looks for FSU in 2019. But in the meantime, how would you like to see those blank spaces filled? What does your ideal Seminole schedule look like? And on a darker timeline, what does your nightmare scenario involve?
