For a second straight year, Florida State’s bowl streak is very much in doubt.
The Seminoles played in a bowl for a 36th straight season last year, but only after beating Louisiana-Monroe in a rescheduled game that enabled Florida State to finish the regular season at 6-6. That game took place after coach Jimbo Fisher had already left for Texas A&M.
This year, Florida State (4-4) needs to win two of its final four games to end the regular season at .500. Although sub-.500 teams have gone to bowls in recent years, it’s rare.
The schedule the rest of the way isn’t easy for the Seminoles: They face N.C. State, Notre Dame, Boston College and Florida, three of which are currently in the Top 25.
Here’s a list of the 37 teams that are already bowl eligible:
