Florida State’s 2007 Bowl Possibilities

Though we didn’t make it to the ACC Championship, Florida State did finish the year with a winning record (7-5). So, we’re going to a bowl. Last year, FSU stunned UCLA 44-27 in the Emerald Bowl. So which bowl will we be going to this year? Well, the invitations haven’t been extended yet, but I’ve examined the selection process and come up with three possibilities. These bowls all grant invitations to an ACC team that finishes fifth, sixth or seventh. Wake Forest finished fifth in the ACC, and Florida State tied with Georgia Tech for sixth. So it seems likely that each of us will end up in one of the following bowls:

The Meineke Car Care Bowl (Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC) The game will be broadcast on ESPN Saturday, December 29th at 12:00 CST. Possible opponents: Cincinnati, Connecticut.

The Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl (LP Field, Nashville, TN) The game will be broadcast on ESPN Monday, December 31, 3:00pm CST. Possible opponents: Arkansas, Mississippi State, Alabama.

The Emerald Bowl (AT&T Park, San Francisco, CA) The game will be broadcast on ESPN Friday, December 28th at 7:30 CST. Possible opponents: Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, California.

Personally, I’m hoping for Oregon or Oregon State, though they may get invited to a bigger bowl. I do know one thing...Miami isn't headed to any bowl!
