The Florida State Seminoles football program traces its roots back to 1899. The team would transfer to the University of Florida when Florida State became an all-women's college from 1905 to the end of World War II. Once men again began attending Florida State, the program was restarted, setting up the perfect in-state rivalry with the Florida Gators. Florida State's other major rivalry is with the University of Miami (Florida), with whom the Seminoles have long competed for ACC dominance. The Florida State football team has won over 17 conference titles and 3 national championships, with the most recent in 2013. Some of the great players to wear the Seminoles uniform include Charlie Ward, Chris Weinke, Deion Sanders, and Warrick Dunn, just to name a very few.

2017 Florida State Season Preview
Florida State Seminoles enters the 2016 season with one of the most experienced squads in the ACC. In 2015, Florida State was in a rebuilding season and was able to end the season with 10 wins and 3 losses and was invited to the Peach Bowl where they lost to the Houston Cougars. With nine starters on offense and six starters on defense returning, this season should result in anything but an ACC Championship and a run at the College Football Championship. Florida State’s defense should be improved in 2016 with the likes of senior DeMarcus Walker on one side and sophomore Josh Sweat on the other as an elite pair of defensive ends. TCU quarterback Sean Maguire was recovering from an ankle injury resulting in Maguire and Deondre Francois going head-to-head to determine who earns the starting QB position in 2016. Florida State will have a huge advantage playing on their home soil in Tallahassee for the annual showdown with Clemson on October 29th. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Seminoles at home games or supporting Florida State on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all Florida State Seminoles’ tickets, including home and away games.

Doak Campbell Stadium Experience
There’s not many rivalries that have produced the games and moments this one has, even going so far as a national title game in 1996 that was won by Florida. Whether it’s 94’s Choke at Doak or the Sugar Bowl, the names usually involved in this rivalry are legendary. From Bowden to Spurrier to Tebow, this is a game you do not want to miss.
If you’ve been a football fan over the last 20 years, you’ve watched some exciting FSU-Miami games. From “Wide Right” 1 & 2 to the 2004 Orange Bowl, we’ve seen some big games change the national championship landscape of the season on a single pass, run and even kick. The 2006 Seminoles-Hurricanes game is the most watched college football game in ESPN history.
This is a new rivalry that was called the Bowden Bowl for nine years as it was a matchup between father and son head coaches. The game usually has a lot to do with the final ACC standings, and since it’s played late in the season a lot is on the line and the pressure builds up in both Death Valley and the Doak.
Florida State in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, and ACC Championship
An 89% winning percentage during the 90’s really did a great job of putting the Seminoles on the map; their incredible three-year run of reaching the National Championship separated them from everyone else. A downright dominant College Football program, the Florida State Seminoles has collected a notable 25 plus bowl wins on their resume, which includes National Championship victories in the 1999 and 2014 and 14 ACC titles. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the ACC Championship Game.
2015 Florida State Football Preview
Florida State has been the most successful football team over the last two years, going a combined 27-1 during that span. The expectations for the Seminoles were so high last season, that despite winning the ACC, and reaching the first ever College Football Playoff, there was disappointment in Tallahassee that they did not bring another title back to Florida State. Expectations for Florida State will still be high in 2015, but diminished from the previous two season. Gone is Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston and in is a quarterback controversy. Former Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson will battle junior Sean Maguire for the Seminoles starting quarterback spot. Whoever wins the job will inherit a talented Seminoles offense, which includes standouts Dalvin Cook, and Travis Rudolph. While Florida State’s offense should be dangerous again in 2015, it will be their defense that will likely prove pivotal to their ACC title chances. Florida State’s 2015 defensive unit will feature 5 senior starters, including linebackers Reggie Northrup and Terrance Smith. Despite all of the changes, Florida State is still the favorite to repeat as ACC champions in 2015. Top games on the Florida State Seminoles 2015 schedule include Miami, Louisville, at Georgia Tech, and at Clemson.
2014 Florida State Football Preview
Florida State won it all last season, from the National Championship to their QB winning the Heisman trophy, and they’ll be favorite to do it all again in 2014. Jameis Winston took the college football world by storm, showing off his impressive arm and decision making down the field throughout the season. When FSU was down in the National Championship Game, Winston didn’t blink or struggle – he stepped up and proved why he was the easy choice for the Heisman Trophy. While Winston did lose two of his best receivers, he’ll still have Rashad Greene and RB Karlos Williams to help him spearhead the offensive attack in 2014. The Seminoles start off the season with a big test against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Arlington. After a Week 2 game against the Citadel at home, they’ll welcome in the Clemson Tigers to Tallahassee. Other big home games include vs. Notre Dame, vs. Virginia, and vs. Florida. The Gators are trying to mount a comeback of their own, so that last regular season game of the season against Florida could be very interesting in two difference conference races.
2012 Florida State Football Preview
The Florida State Seminoles were one of the best teams in the ACC during the 2011 season, and came flying out of the gate with a 2-0 record. However, they experienced some difficulties once they started to face stiffer competition. Ultimately, the Seminoles finished with a 10-4 record and just missed out on the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Championship Game, but were still able to prove their mettle in the Citrus Bowl by knocking off Notre Dame 18-14. Heading into head coach Jimbo Fisher's third year at the helm, the Seminoles have one of the most talented teams in Division I FBS and are early favorites for the ACC crown.
At quarterback, E.J. Manuel will return to lead the offense, and he was more than capable supporting the Seminole air attack last year. Manuel finished with 18 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, as well as adding 411 yards on the ground. The running back position will again be lead by Devonta Freeman, who rushed for more than 500 yards and scored eight touchdowns during 2011. Freshman sensation Rashad Greene is expected to line up alongside Rodney Smith at wide receiver, and tight end Nick O'Leary may be a bigger factor in the passing game. The offensive line was a big question mark during the 2011 season, but the Seminoles did a great job giving the young players experience to build on during 2012.
The Seminole defense is by far the best unit on the team with a series of NFL-caliber players that are hungry for an ACC title. The defensive line is lead by defensive end Brandon Jenkins, who has notched 21.5 sacks over the past two seasons. He will pair with Bjoern Werner to form a powerful pass rushing combination on the outside. The linebacking corps is also filled with experienced playmakers like Nick Moody and Christian Jones, but the best squad may be the secondary. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes and free safety Lemarcus Joyner are two of the best defensive backs in college football, and should give opposing quarterbacks fits throughout the season.
Aside from their usual range of tough ACC opponents, the Seminoles looked to have lucked out a bit with their non-conference matchups. With games against Murray State, Savannah State and USF, the Seminoles have a great chance to get off to a fast start and show college football fans everywhere that they're the team to beat in the ACC during 2012.
2011 Florida State Football Preview
In his first year, Jimbo Fisher led the post-Bobby Bowden-era Florida State Seminoles to an ACC Championship and a 10-4 record. Fisher’s star quarterback Christian Ponder jumped to the NFL, but the Seminoles are still among the favorites to win the ACC crown in 2011.
The loss of Ponder puts the Seminoles’ offense in the hands of E.J. Manuel. Even though it’s his first year with the starting job from game one, Manuel gained a wealth of experience filling in for Ponder when he was hurt last season. In addition to a solid quarterback, Florida State will see the return of running back Chris Thompson as well as star wide receivers Willie Haulstead and Bert Reed, all of whom will take pressure off Manuel.
The defense will be centered around defensive end Brandon Jenkins, who was named to the All-ACC team in 2010. In addition to a standout pass rusher, Florida State also has a great leader in the secondary in Xavier Rhodes, who proved himself in being one of the best defensive backs in the conference last year. If the linebacking corps can step up, it would not be surprising to see the 'Noles fulfill their promise and head back to the ACC Championship game.
2010 Florida State Football Preview
All offseason, fans of the Florida State Seminoles are preparing themselves for the changing of the guard that is to take place when games kick off in the fall of 2010. For the first time in 33 years, famed Seminole Bobby Bowden will not lead his team out of the locker room as head coach.
His replacement, Jimbo Fisher has some big shoes to fill. Bowden constructed a team that finished in the top five of the AP Poll for 14 straight years, collected two national championships and ended his career with an upset victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers in the 2010 Gator Bowl. Fisher, who is inheriting a talented and experienced team, must show that he has what it takes to finish atop the ACC's Atlantic Division.
Quarterback Christian Ponder will likely take the helm this year, after tossing 14 touchdowns and more than 2,700 yards last season. But should he falter, Gator Bowl MVP E.J. Manuel will be prepared to take the starting job. In addition, the Seminoles are returning four starters on their offensive line, including outside guard Rodney Hudson, who didn't allow a sack or quarterback pressure during the entire 2009 season.
Florida State's season gets underway on September 4 against Samford.
2009 Florida State Football Preview
Expectations are high in Tallahassee as the Florida State Seminoles enter the 2009 football season, their 33rd under Head Coach Bobby Bowden. Bowden is currently locked in a back-and-forth battle with Penn State's Joe Paterno for the top spot in wins in major college football. So Bowden and the Seminole faithful are hoping for a magical run in 2009 that might put Bowden out in-front for good. The Noles offense will likely be lead by QB Christian Ponder or EJ Manuel. The FSU defense will be looking to retool around a talented freshman class that could see playing time immediately. Florida State's roster is stacked full of talent, so if they get clicking watch out for the Noles to make a run at the ACC and possibly the National Title.
2008 Florida State Football Preview
The Florida State Seminoles have one of the most highly respected football programs in the country and are always one of the most exciting teams to watch. After two tough seasons in 2006 and 2007, head coach Bobby Bowden will be revamping the team and looking to reassert the Seminoles dominance of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). If any coach can do it, Bowden can, considering that he’s the winningest coach in college football history. Doak Campbell Stadium will rock this season as FSU fans cheer their team on to an ACC title and bowl bid.
