Report: Florida State's rivalry game vs. Florida moved to Black Friday in 2022
Florida State will face rival Florida on Friday, Nov. 25 this upcoming season, according to a report.
That’s per the Tallahassee Democrat’s Jim Henry, who broke the news just hours before the ACC is expected to unveil its entire 2022 football schedule.
Florida State and Florida traditionally play on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Instead, that game is expected to have a higher-profile slot on Black Friday. It’s not yet clear who will be broadcasting the game.
FSU hasn’t defeated the Gators since 2018. Florida has won three straight games in this series, including a narrow 24-21 win over the Seminoles in Gainesville last season.
However, there’s reason to believe that could change in 2022. Florida State is returning several key pieces from last year’s team and Florida will be in its first year under coach Billy Napier.
Florida State has won 7 of the last 11 meetings in this series.
The full ACC schedule will be released at 7 p.m. ET on Monday night.
