MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Florida State Seminoles have been one of the most successful programs over the last three decades in college football. Saturday, the Noles will try to extend one of the longest winning streaks in the NCAA.
If Florida State, which is 6-1 on the season, can knock off the Miami Hurricanes Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium; the Noles will qualify for its 31st consecutive bowl game, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Typically, a school only has to win seven games to become bowl eligible, but since FSU had to schedule two schools from the Football Championship Subdivision, the Noles have to notch seven wins to become bowl eligible.
FSU looks like a heavy favorite coming into the game Saturday night against Miami. FSU’s potent offense will square off with arguably the worst defense in college football in terms of total defense.
A victory by Miami would move the Canes one step closer to a bowl game, boosting the team’s record to 5-3 on the season. Miami plays Virginia Tech, Virginia, South Florida, and Duke to close out the season.
Interestingly enough UM could come into the final game of the season against Duke with both teams looking to become bowl eligible. Duke hasn’t been to a bowl in decades, but has 5 wins on the season.
