"We are very excited to add Boise State to our future football schedule," said Florida State Director of Athletics Randy Spetman. "Boise State has an excellent football program and we feel this will be an out of conference game that will be exciting for fans of both schools and appealing to TV networks.

"Adding the Broncos to our football schedule continues our commitment to bringing top quality opponents to Doak Campbell Stadium. With our neutral site game versus Oklahoma State in 2014, the addition of Pitt and Syracuse to the ACC and now this series, we feel we are putting our football program in the best possible position to compete in the new BCS beginning in 2014."

Florida State is getting a lot of praise for going out there. Nebraska tried, though Boise State's rather exorbitant demands precluded that home-and-home series. Boise State has Virginia on the docket as well for 2015 and 2017.

Between these meteors and sinkholes, who knows.

So Boise will have two Big Ten teams on their schedules in the next decade. Well played, Smurfs.

Nice. I was going to say go Broncos...unless the Noles are in the B1G by then.

How do I vote people down enough to ban them?

Not sure how this got here but you have to get 100 helmet stickers in order to do that. Once you do then you can upvote/downvote. We like to encourage users to upvote more than they downvote though so that we don't have habitual downvoters.  Read with clear acumen and take things lightly and its a fun environment. I swung you an upvote since it seems like you're new to the site. Welcome! 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Don't forget that habitual downvoters will be removed from 11W and are tracked.

Florida State will not be on top forever unlike perennial powerhouse Boise. I wonder how much excitement this game will generate when the time comes.

I hope for some reason the game in Boise is late in the season. I would love to see a bunch of Florida kids have to play in Boise in late October.

Hard to tell if the series will even be worth it by the time it comes around.  Once upon a time, Cal was a powerhouse.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

Boise may actually be a member of the Pac-12 (14?) by then. These games could be the first of several losses every season once they start playing the big boys every week. TCU and Utah have done just about as well as I figured they would when they finally had to play good competition every week.
