Florida State’s bowl outlook will take shape after the regular season ends on Saturday.
Most bowl projections have the Seminoles (6-5) headed to Detroit or Shreveport on Dec. 26. That would likely change with an upset win at Florida on Saturday night.
CBSSports.com has penciled in FSU as headed to the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit to play Michigan State.
ESPN.com has two picks for the Seminoles, projecting them to the Quick Lane Bowl against the Spartans or the Independence Bowl in Shreveport against Florida Atlantic.
247Sports.com has slotted FSU to the Military Bowl in Annapolis, Md., against Navy on Dec. 27.
The Sporting News has projected FSU will play in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C., vs. Kentucky on Dec. 31.
The ACC groups its bowl-eligible teams into pools, which means that the Seminoles – if they finish 6-6 – would likely be in a group that includes the Military Bowl, Quick Lane Bowl, Gasparilla Bowl and Birmingham Bowl.
Regardless of where FSU ends up, the Seminoles are back in a bowl after a one-year absence. It will be FSU’s 38th bowl appearance in 40 seasons.
