#24 Florida State makes 19 threes in rout of Southern Miss

Florida State Isn't Eligible For A Bowl Game But Will Play One Anyway Because NCAA Says So

Florida State the season as the third-ranked team in the nation, but had a nightmare year.

FSU (6-6) and Southern Miss 8-4 will kick off at 12:30 p.m. on December 27 on ESPN.

FSU reached the bowl on the strength of their 6-6 record.

Florida State running back Jacques Patrick would like to hear a few more songs from Drake during the Seminoles' bowl game practices.

But a possible administrative error, apparently discovered by a user of the website Reddit, is calling into question whether the Seminoles' victory against Delaware State should count toward the NCAA's bowl-eligibility requirement.

Under that scenario - and if the information is accurate - FSU's win over Delaware State should not have counted towards the Seminoles' bowl eligibility.

Florida State is slated to take on Southern Mississippi in the independence Bowl Dec. 27, but according to Reddit College Football, the Seminoles never actually earned bowl eligibility.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M prior to the regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe. When this game was scheduled earlier this year, the Hornets may have been at that 90 percent mark (or 56.7 scholarships for non-math majors) and they may have been at the start of the season before suspensions, dismissals or transfers that happened over the course of a year. The Seminoles rescheduled the game, which had been postponed indefinitely due to Hurricane Irma, to give the players a chance to play their way into the postseason and continue the streak.

The PR director for the Independence Bowl told the Orlando Sentinel that he expects Florida State to play next Wednesday.

Southern Miss: Faces Mississippi State on Saturday in Jackson, Mississippi.

The issue is Delaware State, an FCS team that Florida State beat 77-6, has not offered enough scholarships to its players in the most recent two-year period to count as a win for bowl eligibility purposes.

"I just wanted to make sure I get the right guys", Taggart said.

Florida State interim coach Odell Haggins discusses the hiring of new head coach Willie Taggart's hiring on Friday.

"I have no doubt a waiver would have been granted" to Florida State, Dannen said.

In the weird and freakish winding road that has been the Florida State Seminoles 2017 season, this latest development nearly seems fitting.
