Florida State Seminoles football, after opening the 2024 season in Ireland vs. the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, will kick off its home slate with a Labor Day matchup vs. the Boston College Eagles.

Florida State leads the all-time series vs. Boston College 16-5 (7-2 at home) with the Seminoles currently riding a five-game win steak against the Eagles.

Last season saw the Eagles nearly pull off an upset in Chestnut Hill — Boston College first took a 10-3 lead, but then FSU put up 28 straight to make it 31-10. The Eagles then scored 19 unanswered points by taking advantage of some poorly-timed Florida State mistakes, but ultimately fell short after a school-record 18th penalty on the home team kept the chains moving for Florida State.

FSU has played on Labor Day weekend the last two seasons, wins vs. the LSU Tigers in New Orleans and Orlando, but hasn’t played on the actual date since a loss to Virginia Tech in 2018.
