The Florida State Seminoles are among the top of college football's most elite and storied programs, and you don't get a seat at that kind of table without earning it over sustained periods of success against a wide variety of opponents.

With countless player and coaching talents passing through Tallahassee for the better part of a century, one would think the Seminoles have pulled at least one over each of their opponents somewhere down the line. Keeping that in mind, here's a look at the full list of FBS opponents Florida State has surprisingly never beaten.
