Miami Herald Writer

Sept. 2: @ Pittsburgh, 8:00 PM (ESPN)

Heinz Field: Florida State welcomes Pittsburgh to the ACC with a Labor Day trip to Pittsburgh and a nationally televised prime-time game. FSU 28-14.

Sept. 14: Nevada, 3:30 PM (ESPN/ESPN2)

Doak Campbell Stadium: Nevada visits Tallahassee in what should a very winnable home-opener. FSU 38-10.

Sept. 21: Bethune Cookman, TBA (TBA)

Doak Campbell Stadium: The pride of Daytona Beach visits Tallahassee looking for an historic upset, but the Wildcats will be vastly overmatched. FSU 48-7.

Sept. 28: @ Boston College, TBA (TBA)

Alumni Stadium: The Eagles have been picked to finish at the bottom of the Atlantic Division, but conference road games against major colleges have tripped FSU before. FSU 27-21.

Oct. 5: Maryland, TBA (TBA)

Doak Campbell Stadium: Randy Edsall’s seat could be red hot by the time the Terrapins visit Tallahassee, and the game is unlikely to cool it. FSU 31-17.

Oct. 19: @ Clemson, TBA (TBA)

Memorial Stadium: In what likely will be the battle for the ACC’s Atlantic division, Clemson has the edge and the home-field advantage. Clemson 34-31.

BB&T Field: Jim Grobe’s teams always give Florida State problems, and a late-season road trip to Winston-Salem has trap written all over it. FSU 31-28.

Doak Campbell Stadium: The Orange visit Tallahassee for the first time as a member of the ACC but arrive overmatched. FSU 31-10.
