Florida State vs. Oklahoma State will open 2014 season in Dallas

Tom Pennington

The 2014 season opener will be played in prime time on ESPN, pitting the two programs against each other for the first time since 1985.

Cowboys Stadium will play host to the Florida St. Seminoles and the Oklahoma St. Cowboys when the two teams meet in the 2014 season opener on Dec. 30, according to The Florida Times-Union.

The game will be played in prime time and televised on ESPN, and will mark the first time that Florida State has opened its season at a neutral site since they battled the Iowa St. Cyclones in Kansas City in 2002. The Seminoles have not played a game in Texas since the 1992 Cotton Bowl, in which they downed the Texas A&M Aggies by a score of 10-2.

The Seminoles and Cowboys last met in the 1985 Gator Bowl, a game that saw Florida State walk away with a 34-23 win.

After catching flack for a soft schedule in 2012, Florida State is reportedly seeking out more games played at neutral sites and games against prominent programs in an effort to rebuild its image.
