FSU, Oklahoma State discussing 2014 game in Cowboys Stadium
Florida State is looking to play a 2014 kickoff game in a neutral site and has talked to Oklahoma State about making that happen. Nothing is finalized on the deal, and Oklahoma State will opt for the extra home game if the neutral-site option falls through.
Florida State and Oklahoma State are in talks to play in Cowboys Stadium early in 2014, according to a source with knowledge of the discussions.
The Seminoles, whose non-conference schedule this season included Murray State and Savannah State because of a cancelled game with West Virginia, have expressed interest in playing a 2014 "kickoff" game, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Nothing is finalized on the deal, I'm told, and Oklahoma State will opt for the extra home game in case the neutral-site option falls through.
Scheduling neutral-site games is growing in popularity as teams look for a logical way to beef up resumes while satisfying fans or alumni nationally. Oklahoma State, for example, has a large Dallas-area alumni base. And if the looming college football playoff increases the need for tougher non-conference schedules, that could deepen the neutral-site intrigue.
The games make good money. The Alabama-Michigan showdown in September easily sold out. The Georgia Dome in Atlanta is booked with neutral-site games until 2015.
Kansas State, which defeated Oklahoma State 44-30 on Saturday to remain undefeated and in the BCS hunt, is talking to teams about potential games in Arrowhead Stadium or Soldier Field.
