There are just 65 days remaining until Florida State opens up its season against Ole Miss. Today, we take a look at the history of the No. 65 uniform.

Hayward Haynes, a guard who wore No. 65 from 1986-1990, was named to a postseason team once in his career. In 1990, the former 'Nole was named to the second team All-South Independent following the season. Despite never making an All-American or first team All-South Independent team in his career, that didn't stop the New Orleans Saints from drafting him in the seventh round of the 1991 draft.

In 1996, guard Chad Bates was named to the first team All-ACC after his senior year. The previous season, he had been named an All-ACC honorable mention. The South Carolina native started two and a half years and Florida State while wearing No. 65 on his back from 1993 to 1996.
