Mis-Reddit: Florida State Is, in Fact, Bowl Eligible

  • Bowl plans to host FSU despite questions about Seminoles' eligibility

In order for victories against FCS schools to count toward bowl eligibility, the FCS program must field a team with at least 90 percent players on scholarship.

However, the Seminoles are less than a week away from taking on Southern Miss in the Independence bowl while three other bowl eligible teams - Buffalo, Western Michigan and UTSA - sit at home without a postseason matchup.

Despite initial reports that Florida State's 77-6 win over Delaware State should not count toward the Seminoles' bowl eligibility, the victory will indeed count, the university stated in a Friday night release.

If they have indeed done their due diligence, and discovered numbers that weren't available to Delaware State about Delaware State at time of writing yesterday that confirm Florida State's bowl eligibility, then I'm very happy for them. The game kicks off at 1:30 p.m.

The Seminoles, who will extend the nation's longest bowl streak, are expected to arrive in Shreveport, La. on Saturday for the bowl game.

Burnley have been doing great this season so we didn't want to give them any incentive. Following today's win, Kane said: "A few people have been speaking about it".

Thus, Florida State's win over Delaware State shouldn't count and would leave the Seminoles at 5-6.

FSU reached the bowl on the strength of their 6-6 record. After our own investigation, we have determined and confirmed that Delaware State has not met the 90% threshold set by the NCAA.

Florida State was ranked No. 3 nationally to start the season but lost both its season opener to Alabama and starting quarterback Deondre Francois in the process to a season-ending injury.

As the AP points out, contracts between Football Bowl Subdivision and FCS programs for regular season games usually stipulate that the FCS program meet the bowl-eligibility requirement.
