FSU, Oklahoma State discussing 2014 game in Cowboys Stadium

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.
