NCAA Football: Duquesne at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State Seminoles football has announced that its primetime matchup vs. the Boston College Eagles has sold out.

It’s the first sellout under the new capacity at Doak Campbell Stadium, which became 79,560 after renovations in 2016.

The last time Florida State sold out a home game was 2015 vs. Miami, a 29-24 victory.

2015 was also the last time before this season that Florida State started 3-0, going 6-0 to start the year.

In an era where ticket sales are struggling across sports as the view and experience from the couch rival the real-life thing, it’s an impressive feat. FSU came close in 2018 vs. Virginia Tech, and the Seminoles only sold out one in 2013 — but did officially claim to sell out every single home game in 2014.
