FSU officially altering schedule in attempt to keep historic streak alive

Without this game, FSU would have only played 11 games this season.

Florida State has officially added another game to their schedule this year.

On Tuesday, Florida State announced that they had re-added Louisiana-Monroe to the schedule after the initial game between the two teams was cancelled earlier this year.

Florida State will host ULM on Dec. 2 in Doak Campbell Stadium, FSU Vice President and Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox announced Tuesday. The game was rescheduled after the original date of Sept. 9 was canceled due to Hurricane Irma.

"I appreciate the efforts of our administration as well as the administration and Coach Viator at ULM to get this game rescheduled," head coach Jimbo Fisher said. "It was unfortunate for both teams that we were not able to play this game in September, and both teams deserve the chance to play their 12th game of the season. Any time we have the opportunity to play in Doak Campbell Stadium in front of our fans we are excited. However, this week our complete focus is on Clemson."

Since Florida State (3-4) has officially been eliminated from ACC Championship contention, that week will be open for them to play this game against Louisiana-Monroe. Louisiana-Monroe's conference, the Sun Belt, does not currently have a conference title game, but will have one next year.

Without the reschedule, both teams would have only played 11 regular season games this year.

Assuming the Seminoles beat Delaware State and can beat the Gators in the Swamp, but ultimately lose to Clemson next week, then they will need the game against Louisiana-Monroe to get to six wins and bowl eligibility for the 36th consecutive year. It's the longest streak in college football.
