                BOISE, Idaho - Boise State University and two-time national football champion Florida State University will play a home-and-home series beginning in 2019, the schools announced today.

                The first game will be played Sept. 7, 2019 on Bobby Bowden Field at Doak S. Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla., with the Seminoles coming to Bronco Stadium, Sept. 12, 2020. 

                Both schools will exchange a guarantee of $400,000.

                This is the second time in the past week Boise State has announced a home-and-home series with an Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) team.  Last Monday (Feb. 25) the Broncos announced a two-game series with the University of Virginia.

                "Scheduling a home-and-home series against a perennial top-25 program like Florida State is another step in growing our football program," Boise State Director of Athletics Mark Coyle stated.  "Florida State is a team fans talk about when discussing the top collegiate programs in the country and I know Bronco Nation will be excited about hosting a team like Seminoles in Boise."

                Florida State completed the 2012 season with an overall record of 12-2, including a 31-10 victory over Northern Illinois in the Discover Orange Bowl.  In the final 2012 polls, FSU was ranked No. 8 by USA Today, No. 10 by the Associated Press and No. 12 in the Bowl Championship Series Standings.

The Seminoles have made 31-consecutive post-season bowl appearances (the longest in the nation), won 13 ACC Championships and captured national championships in 1993 and 1999. 

                The Broncos are coming off of an 11-2 season in 2012, which included a tie for the Mountain West Conference Championship and a 28-26 win over Washington in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas. 

Boise State finished the 2012 season ranked No. 14 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, No. 18 in the Associated Press Poll and No. 19 in the final BCS Standings. 

The Broncos have the best record in college football since 1997 with an overall mark of 168-35 (.828), and the best home winning percentage since 2000 with a 79-4 record (.952).
