FSU to honor Coach Bowden on helmets, coach’s shirts and on field

Florida State’s football program will celebrate the life of legendary coach Bobby Bowden in a number of ways during the 2021 season.

Each back helmet bumper will feature Coach Bowden’s signature in garnet on a white background, and each coach’s polo will have the Bowden patch on one sleeve.

On the field, the Bowden logo with his iconic hat and “Bobby” signature will be painted on each 25-yard line opposite the ACC logos. In the south end zone, a tribute banner with the same logo will be installed over the area that was previously occupied by the Marching Chiefs before their move to the north end zone.

Florida State opens its 2021 campaign by hosting Notre Dame on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. on ABC.
