Florida State clarifies eligibility status for bowl game

The Seminoles' win over FCS-member Delaware State should not have counted toward their bowl-eligibility requirements, as first discovered by Reddit CFB. After requesting and accessing a report from the school's statistics, Reddit found that Delaware State used 87 percent of its scholarship grants-in-aid over a two-year period.

The story, which was reported by Reddit College Football and was later confirmed by ex-ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy on Facebook, centered around Delaware State, a team Florida State beat 77-6 earlier this season.

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.

Thus, Florida State's win over Delaware State shouldn't count and would leave the Seminoles at 5-6.

Florida State finally addressed the controversy Friday, and said that Bakonydraco had "incomplete information". At the FCS level, teams have 63 athletic scholarships to use (FBS teams are allotted 85 scholarships).

White Christmas? Snow forecast for parts of Scotland
The National Weather Service's forecast indicates the next chance of snow will come New Year's Eve weekend. In 2016, Shimla experienced snowfall on Christmas, nearly after a gap of nearly 24 years.


The NCAA dictates FCS programs must meet that 90 percent threshold for a team to count towards bowl eligibility. There is a lot of interpretation involved with the NCAA rule book, and sometimes in situations like this one it allows the governing body or a school to get out of a potentially embarrassing situation.

The Seminoles are not actually bowl-eligible, but they're still playing in one.

. "If it was amusing, it would be a comedy of errors".

With less than a week before FSU's game against Southern Miss, it will be interesting to see if any action is taken by the NCAA or Florida State to remedy the issue.

Florida State was ranked No. 3 nationally to start the season but lost both its season opener to Alabama and starting quarterback Deondre Francois in the process to a season-ending injury.
