The end of the Jameis Winston era ended unceremoniously, as Florida State was bounced in the first-ever College Football Playoff in one of the two semifinal matchups against the Oregon Ducks. Although the game did not affect the NFL Draft stock of the embattled quarterback, as he was selected No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the book is officially closed on an era filled with success, but not without controversy.
Jimbo Fisher begins his sixth season as the Seminoles head coach without a win streak, as his 29-game streak was snapped as a result of the Oregon loss. Fisher will begin to build a new winning trend in hopes of a second National Championship in the past three seasons.

Most Expensive: Florida State Seminoles vs. Miami Hurricanes | Doak Campbell Stadium | Average Price: $259.28 | Get-in Price: $97
It’s no surprise to see this in-state Florida rivalry as the most expensive Florida State Seminoles tickets on the secondary market for this season. Last season, the Seminoles went into Sun Life Stadium and preserved their perfect season with a 30-26 comeback victory in front of more than 75,000 fans. The schools have met 59 times with Miami leading the series 31-28 due to the recent success of Florida State. FSU currently holds a five-game winning streak in the rivalry and will look to notch another one in this affair.
11/28/2015 | Florida Gators vs. Florida State Seminoles | Ben Hill Griffin Stadium | Average Price: $224.86 | Get-in Price: $100
With the state of Florida having many prominent college teams, the in-state rivalry doesn’t stop at The U. The Florida Gators couldn’t complete their upset bid over Florida State last season, as the Seminoles reached the ACC title game after their final regular season 24-19 victory. Aside from the National Semifinal against Oregon, this was the highest attended Florida State game last season with a reported attendance of 82,485. The series will have an added wrinkle this season, as Florida begins their tenure under new head coach Jim McElwain, formerly of Colorado State.
9/5/2015 | Florida State Seminoles vs. Texas State Bobcats | Doak Campbell Stadium | Average Price: $203.72 | Get-in Price: $10
One may wonder how a game against Texas State is one of the most expensive Florida State games this season, but Noles fans are excited to start a new winning streak. The first game of the regular season is considered a cupcake game, as the Seminoles look to smooth things out under one of the two quarterbacks fighting for the starting spot. Sean Maguire was in line to become the starter until Everett Golson transferred to Florida State from Notre Dame. Whichever player is under center, Florida State should have enough talent around the field to overcome any miscues the offense might see early on.
