Florida State, which was 37 of 66 from the field, led by 26 at halftime (47-21) and was up by as many as 57 late in the second half.

P.J. Savoy scored 17 points and 24th-ranked Florida State made 19 3-pointers as it closed nonconference play with a 98-45 victory over Southern Mississippi on Thursday.

Scrambling to finish 6-6 allowed the Seminoles reach bowl eligibility and extend their record streak of consecutive years with a bowl appearance to 36.

/r/CFB bases its report on NCAA rules that state a win by an FBS team (FSU) over and FCS team (in this case Delaware State) only counts toward bowl eligibility if the FCS team is utilizing at least 90% of its scholarship limit. And smartly. As he brought up multiple times, recruits want to know who they're going to play for.

However, after receiving data from Delaware State, Reddit reports that Delaware State had not awarded more than 90 percent of its scholarships, thus rendering Florida State's win over them as one that, by rule, does not count toward bowl eligibility.

Florida State is slated to take on Southern Mississippi in the independence Bowl Dec. 27, but according to Reddit College Football, the Seminoles never actually earned bowl eligibility.

Under that scenario - and if the information is accurate - FSU's win over Delaware State should not have counted towards the Seminoles' bowl eligibility.

Republican tax bill passes House: What California leaders say will happen next
The debt is expected to soar by at least $1 trillion more than it would without the tax measure, according to projections . The Senate will still vote on the bill Tuesday night before passing it back to the House.

Florida State fans should be giving thanks for this "monumental oversight".

Florida State will still play in the December 27 Independence Bowl, largely because it is too late to make a change. The Seminoles rescheduled the game, which had been postponed indefinitely due to Hurricane Irma, to give the players a chance to play their way into the postseason and continue the streak.

"I just wanted to make sure I get the right guys", Taggart said.

"I have no doubt a waiver would have been granted" to Florida State, Dannen said.

But Independence Bowl game officials still expect FSU to face Southern Miss on Wednesday.

"That is a matter between NCAA, Florida State and Delaware State", bowl spokesman Stefan Nolet said Thursday evening.

FSU wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Lawrence Dawsey will not be retained by new head coach Willie Taggart.
