Oklahoma State football: OSU to face Florida State in 2014 opener at Cowboys Stadium
“The very best chance for us to win a Big 12 championship is to not encourage what could be a 10th game of the year that could be very difficult,” Gundy said then. “It's just the percentages. But I don't do scheduling. I've not been involved in scheduling, so if that's going on, it's dealing with somebody else.”
But the deal is done. And in Florida State, the Cowboys get to face one of college football's most historic programs — and one that has also had plenty of recent success. The Seminoles won the ACC this season and will face Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 1.
OSU and Florida State have met four times, with the Seminoles winning three of the matchups. The schools last met in the 1985 Gator Bowl and haven't played in the regular season since a 1978 contest in Stillwater.
