STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State Cowboys will launch their 2014 football season with a neutral field game against the Florida State Seminoles in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The official announcement was made today by OSU, Florida State, the Dallas Cowboys and ESPN.
The prime time game will be played on Aug. 30.
The Cowboys and Seminoles will be meeting for just the fifth time with Florida State holding a 3-1 series advantage. The schools last played in the 1985 Gator Bowl. They haven’t met in a regular season matchup since the Seminoles visited Stillwater in 1978.
The Florida State game continues a recent OSU tradition of intersectional non-conference matchups. Since 2007, OSU has had home-and-home series with Georgia and Washington State. The Cowboys will face Mississippi State in their 2013 season opener at Reliant Stadium in Houston as part of the inaugural game of the Texas Kickoff Classic.
