Website says Noles not eligible for bowl game

Florida State has faced one problem after another since starting the season ranked No. 3. Here's to saying the program will celebrate its second-ever postseason tilt by winning in its first-ever bowl game.

Thomas played in all 12 games this season, leading the Seminoles in tackles with 85.

With that number being at 87 percent, Delaware State cannot be counted by a FBS school (FSU football) for the sake of bowl eligibility - meaning the Seminoles are 6-6 on the field, but 5-6 when it comes to counting toward bowl games. While FBS teams are usually able to count one win against FCS competition towards bowl eligibility, the report reveals that Delaware State did not meet FCS scholarship requirements in order to be counted as a win towards bowl eligibility.

Delaware State is an FCS school, and NCAA rules state that an FBS team's win over an FCS school can only count towards their bowl eligibility if that FCS school has "awarded at least 90% of the FCS scholarship limit".

Just finishing the 2017 season - period - will likely be a relief to Florida State fans. After reaching out to Delaware State, bakonydraco did the math and found that the school was only using 87% of their allotted 63 scholarships - short of the threshold necessary for Florida State's win to count.

The 6-6 Florida State Seminoles are now preparing to face Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl on December 27th, but very detailed report posted on Reddit questions whether Florida State is officially bowl eligible, just days before the game.

THE SKINNY: Normally, I couldn't give a spit who wins any of these bowl games as long as they put on a good, entertaining show.

The Seminoles are trying to remain focused on the bowl game preparation, but the thoughts of moving forward under Taggart's new leadership is a healthy distraction.

Florida State will still play in the December 27 Independence Bowl, largely because it is too late to make a change. He said only Wisconsin asked for verification of the numbers and that was done with a simple letter stating UNI was in compliance.

Florida State had preseason CFP hopes and had no expectation of being borderline bowl eligible.
