Six (6) tickets to any one (1) Florida State University home game during the 2020 season
Private “Golden Chief” parking pass

The Florida State University Seminoles are the traditional nemesis of the Gators, and their annual confrontation is referred to as the Sunshine Showdown. The game first took place in 1958 and is played on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Before coach Bobby Bowden arrived at FSU in 1976, the series was lopsided in favor of the Gators. They still lead 36-36-2, but since 1976, FSU leads 24-21-1.

Gators aside, the Seminoles have been a remarkably successful team. They’ve played in 49 bowl games, won three national championships and many conference titles, and have produced 47 NFL first-round draft picks and three Heisman Trophy winners. The team flourished under Bowden, playing in five national championship games between 1993 and 2001 and winning the title three times. Their games are played on Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium, with a capacity of nearly 80,000.

The winning bidder’s party of six will sit in the “Doak,” as the stadium is known to students, to view an example of college football at its finest.

INSIDER’S INFO: Tickets are valid for the 2020 season only and the winner’s choice of home game must be selected by March 1, 2020.
