FSU will take on the Arizona State Sun Devils today at 2pm in the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl in their final game of the 2019 season. Odell Haggins, in his (hopefully) last game as interim head coach, held his usual Monday press conference but in El Paso instead of Tallahassee, and spoke about the match-up.
Tomahawk Nation’s Q&A with House of Sparky — get to know the Sun Devils a little better before the game.
But there were some big announcements yesterday. First, WR Tamorrion Terry announced via video he would return to FSU for his redshirt-junior season. WR coach Ron Dugans couldn’t contain his reaction to the news:
Then, in something of a stunner, defensive tackle and projected first round pick Marvin Wilson also declared he was also returning for another season in the Garnet and Gold. Get that man some injury insurance!
New head coach Mike Norvell spoke to the Marching Chiefs:
The ’Noles are also getting some Sun Bowl swag:

Mike Martin Jr. has been on a tear on the recruiting trail lately. The Baseball team landed the 2023 No. 1 outfielder in the state of Florida, then a grad transfer pitcher with just 46 days until the season begins. But that’s not all — they also picked up a commitment from a 2023 shortstop and then a third commitment (and second pitcher) within a 24-hour span.
Updating where the Men’s Basketball team stands in the polls and bracketology projections before the ’Noles dive into conference play. That’s just in time, because they start conference play today at home against Georgia Tech at noon.
Women’s Basketball center River Baldwin earned her second straight ACC freshman of the week award.
The NFL regular season has wrapped up and a lot of former Seminoles made some waves in the league this year, as Jameis Winston made history both in great and hilariously awful ways, Dalvin Cook set the league on fire before an injury limited him, Brian Burns had a solid rookie season, and much more. Several are now preparing for the playoffs.
Orlando Magic phenom Jonathan Isaac is also having a good season:
