FLORENCE, Ala — The University of North Alabama has added a football game at Florida State to its 2023 schedule.

The Lions will face the Seminoles on November 18, 2023 at Doak Campbell Stadium. It will be UNA's first game against an ACC opponent in football and the first against a school from a Power Five Conference. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron. 

The meeting will mark the ninth game between a UNA football squad ad an FBS program. The Lions had played four FBS programs prior to the 2020 season when they met Liberty, Southern Mississippi and BYU, all on the road. North Alabama already has a game scheduled at Memphis in 2022 and will face Florida State in 2023 and North Carolina in 2027.

Florida State is the third announced non-conference opponent for UNA in 2023. The Lions are scheduled to open the season at home against the Chattanooga Mocs on Aug. 31 and will also travel to play the Dixie State Trailblazers on Oct. 7.
