Florida State refutes the claim that it shouldn't be bowl-eligible

Internet reacts to 'monumental oversight' regarding Florida State's bowl selection

At the FCS level, teams have 63 athletic scholarships to use (FBS teams are allotted 85 scholarships).

A reddit report drawing attention to Florida State's mistaken bowl eligibility is picking up steam.

What apparently is hard: figuring out whether a team is eligible to play in a bowl game, because just about everyone, save for sleuthing Redditor bakonydraco, missed that FSU has no right to play Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl on December 27. 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.

Gerrard makes bold Kane prediction after starring in Tottenham win v Burnley
Kane's treble at Turf Moor on Saturday took his Premier League goal tally in 2017 to 36. "It's the same record as Alan Shearer ". England forward Kane will break the record if he scores in Tottenham's next match against Southampton on Tuesday.

The controversy centered on the Seminoles' 77-6 win over Delaware State on November 18, with it being claimed that the Hornets did not meet the 90 percent requirement needed to count a win towards bowl eligibility.

FSU also stated that it has received confirmation from Delaware State that the 90 percent requirement is satisfied for the 2017 season, meaning that the win will count towards bowl-eligibility. The reports, according to FSU, represent incomplete information and only reflect athletics scholarships received.

It was pretty much a moot point, as neither Florida State, the NCAA nor the Independence Bowl had shown any signs that they planned on keeping the Seminoles out of the game.

They also made Flowers uncomfortable in the pocket, as the senior quarterback missed two would-be touchdowns early in the game. Offensively for the Bulls, senior quarterback Quinton Flowers threw for 311 yards and four touchdowns with zero interceptions.

Florida State could have applied for a waiver through the NCAA's bowl eligibility process had the issue been discovered sooner. The program then was forced to deal with the aftereffects of Hurricane Irma and struggled to a 3-5 record after eight games.

If FSU beats Southern Miss, the Seminoles will clinch a 7-6 record and their 41st consecutive winning season.
