Florida State confirms its bowl eligibility amid Reddit report

  • Florida State University introduced Willie Taggart as their new NCAA college football coach in Tallahassee Fla. Wed Dec. 6 2017. Florida State defeated Louisiana Monroe

The Florida State Seminoles have surprisingly only lost one game so far during the 2017-18 season, as they recently fell to the Oklahoma State Cowboys by just one point.

One of the Seminoles' six wins came against Delaware State, an FCS opponent, on November 18. The Noles' 42-10 victory over Louisiana Monroe - in a game played December 2nd after being canceled on September 9th due to Hurricane Irma - gave Florida State their needed sixth win of the season. That's according to some leg work done by the college football subreddit r/CFB, which looked into a game Florida State played against an FCS opponent that should not have counted.

Florida State secured a bowl bid for a 36th consecutive season - what the school boasts as an ongoing national record - thanks to three straight wins to close out its schedule, concluding with a rescheduled game against Louisiana-Monroe on December 2.

And it turns out that Reddit report was correct, but it is too late to replace Florida State with a bowl-eligible team that was left out of bowl season. As this is less than 90%, Florida State can not count the Delaware State game through Exception Over the last two years, they did not award 90 percent of their players scholarships, which means the game should not have counted.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reached out to Wright Waters, the executive director of the Football Bowl Association, who believes this situation "probably happens more than" fans and the media realize.

"This monumental error should have been caught at three levels: the school, conference and NCAA", a bowl industry source told college football insider Brett McMurphy.

Six wins are what it takes to be bowl-eligible, with some leeway for five-win teams to enter the mix if there aren't enough six-win teams to fill the myriad of games.

Bakonydraco reacted to Florida State's statement on Reddit.

Florida State could have applied for a waiver through the NCAA's bowl eligibility process had the issue been discovered sooner.
