TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The ACC has released Florida State’s updated 2020 football schedule.

The schedule was released Thursday morning.

As part of the revised schedule, FSU will open the season against Georgia Tech at home on September 12th. They face Samford the next week as their one out of conference game.

The classic rivalry game between the Seminoles and the University of Florida won’t happen this year, according to the new schedule. As part of the new scheduling model, the ACC permitted teams to play ten conference games and one non-conference match-up. The game with Florida couldn't happen because the SEC didn't permit teams to play a non-conference opponent.

Florida State opens preseason practice Friday.

Attendance for FSU’s 2020 home games will be limited in the stadium bowl and the Dunlap Champions Club.

FSU will adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines, which will limit capacity to somewhere between 20-25%. The Seminole Boosters, Inc., and FSU’s Athletic Ticket Office will work with current 2020 season ticket holders to review their options as a result of the limited seating.
