Florida State will open its 2013 football schedule on Labor Day in a night game at new Atlantic Coast Conference member Pittsburgh.
The Seminoles' schedule was released by the ACC Monday and features home conference games with Maryland, North Carolina State, Miami and Syracuse. The home schedule is highlighted by a Nov. 2 visit by archrival Miami. Florida State also has nonconference home games against Idaho, Nevada and Bethune-Cookman, a Football Championship Subdivision member.
The marquee road games include Clemson on Oct.19 and Florida in the regular season finale Nov. 30. Florida State has an open date the week before visiting Clemson and also the weekend after the Monday night opener at Pitt.
Florida State went 12-2 in the 2012 season and finished 10th in The Associated Press final poll.
