At the first media availability of Peach Bowl week, Jimbo Fisher announced that Everett Golson did not make the trip to Atlanta with the team citing personal reasons. His collegiate career has come to an end.
Golson started Florida State's first seven games of the 2015 season, leading the Seminoles to a 6-1 record while accumulating 1,778 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and three interceptions. However, Golson suffered an injury against Georgia Tech that caused him to miss the Syracuse game, where Sean Maguire made a big impression and earned the starting job for the remainder of the season.
At the final bowl prep practice of the season in Tallahassee on December 18th, Golson was missing from practice with what Fisher said was a family emergency.
Golson will finish his career with 7,628 passing yards, 42 passing touchdowns, 548 rushing yards, and 14 rushing touchdowns.
With Golson out of the equation, look for J.J. Cosentino, who entered the Chattanooga game in relief of Maguire when the game was in hand, to serve as the backup quarterback for Thursday's Peach Bowl.
