FSU Football: Kickoff Times for Four Games Announced athletics

Florida State has long known who it will take the field against in 2016, but on Thursday, game times and networks for four opponents were announced.

Kickoff for Florida State’s Labor Day opener against Ole Miss in Orlando has been set for 8 p.m. EST and will air on ESPN. It is the Seminoles’ first ever meeting with the Rebels, but since 2005, FSU has played on Labor Day five times and own a 3-2 record in those contests.

FSU’s home opener against Charleston Southern on Sept. 10 has been set for 12:30 p.m. EST. It will air on the Raycom Sports Network. The Seminoles defeated the Buccaneers 62-10 in the last meeting between the teams in 2011.

The Seminoles’ ACC opener at Louisville on Sept. 17 will also be an early kickoff. FSU will face the Cardinals at noon EST with the contest to be shown on ABC. Florida State has defeated Louisville in each of the last two seasons, including by a 41-21 margin last season in Tallahassee.

FSU’s Veteran’s Day home showdown with Boston College on Nov. 11 will begin at 7:30 p.m. EST and be shown on ESPN2. It marks the second straight season that the Noles and Eagles will meet on a Friday night. FSU shut out Boston College 14-0 last year in Chestnut Hill. Seminoles’ head coach Jimbo Fisher is 6-0 in his career against the Eagles.
