Well, after a loss puts FSU at 2-4 for the season, the ’Noles bowl eligibility could go down to the last game of the season at Florida. Without a possible makeup game vs. ULM, Florida State needs to finish the season 4-1 to secure bowl eligibility.

Some sites, such as Sports Illustrated, aren’t confident in FSU’s ability to gain that elusive sixth win, and don’t even have the ’Noles projected in a bowl at all.
