FSU, USF set home-and-home series

Florida State and USF have set a home-and-home series for 2015 and 2016, the schools announced Monday.

USF will visit Tallahassee on Sept. 26, 2015, with the Seminoles making the trip to Tampa on Sept. 24, 2016.

"We’ve been working collaboratively on extending the series between USF and FSU for some time," USF athletic director Doug Woolard said. "The two previous games provided such great atmospheres for both of our fan bases that it was important for us to extend the series. Combined with our recent non-conference scheduling announcements, we’re very pleased with how our future schedules have come together."

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said, "We're excited to have USF back on the schedule. They're a great program. It's been a good series thus far, and it's great for our fans to have another in-state series on the schedule."

In the first meeting between the two schools in 2009, USF visited Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee and pulled the 17-7 upset. The Seminoles made the return trip to Tampa last season, handing the Bulls a 30-17 defeat in front of a USF-record 69,383 fans.
