Tulsa will face Florida State and Air Force will take on Florida in this year's Orange Bowl Basketball Classic, to be played three days before the annual football bowl game.

Tulsa officials announced Tuesday that the Golden Hurricane's game against Florida State will be the opener of the Dec. 29 double-header, to be followed by Florida-Air Force. Game times will be announced later.

The games in the 19th annual basketball classic will be played at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., the home of the NHL's Florida Panthers.

Tulsa, playing under first-year coach Danny Manning, has not faced Florida State since the 1982-1983 season. The Seminoles lead the series 3-0.
