Cowboys and Indians are meeting in Texas to kick off the 2014 college football season. In press releases from both universities, Florida State and Oklahoma State have confirmed rumors that they will be facing off in the “Cowboys Classic” on August 30, 2014. As has been the case with past Classics, the Seminoles and Cowboys will be squaring off at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
“We are pleased to be playing Oklahoma State and with the exposure the game will provide our program and our university,” said FSU athletic director Randy Spetman. “I know that our fans will be excited about visiting Texas Stadium and the Dallas area. It is a football venue that is second to none.”
This season the Alabama Crimson Tide bested the Michigan Wolverines, and the first ever Cowboys Classic the year prior saw BYU overcome Oklahoma. It has been announced that LSU and TCU will play each other in next year’s installment.
When Florida State and Oklahoma State meet in 2014, the game will serve as the season opener for both schools.
“The announcement of this game is timely for Florida State in that we have in the past few weeks begun a determined effort to regularly schedule high-profile non-conference football opponents,” Spetman continued. “We are in the preliminary stages of exploring both home-and-home and neutral site games with prominent programs in the near future.”
