Florida State football becomes bowl eligible for 35th consecutive season

New, comments

The ‘Noles wrapped up bowl eligibility with its win at NC State.

When Florida State wrapped up a victory over NC State on Sunday, The ‘Noles secured its sixth victory of the season, clinching bowl eligibility.

It is the nation’s longest active bowl streak and now sits at 35 consecutive seasons. No other school has an active streak more than Virginia Tech’s 23 and only 12 schools have one for more than 10 years.

The last season FSU did not qualify for a bowl was in 1981, Bobby Bowden’s sixth year of coaching the ‘Noles. In those past 34 bowls, Florida State has a combined 24-9-1 record and won all three of its National Championships. In the six years under Jimbo Fisher, FSU is 4-2.

With three games remaining in the season, FSU can continue to build its bowl resume, and get a spot in an upper tier bowl. Florida State will face off against Syracuse on the road while playing BC and Florida at home.
