Seminoles reschedule game with Louisiana-Monroe

Florida State Reschedules UL-Monroe Game- In Desperate Attempt to Extend Bowl Streak

Florida State Reschedules UL-Monroe Game- In Desperate Attempt to Extend Bowl Streak

Florida State's 36-year bowl streak - the longest in college football - was nearly certain to end following a 35-3 loss to Boston College two weeks ago.

Since then, however, the Seminoles have mostly fallen into the ditch with four losses in the seven games that followed their extended post-Irma hiatus (Florida State went three full weeks without playing a game).

The game, originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 9, was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.

However, there had been increasing talk of late, coinciding with FSU's dwindling bowl hopes, that the game could be rescheduled and played this season; last week, it was reported that an official decision on that game would be made this week.

Things had yet to go completely haywire for Florida State on September 7, when the school announced that it was canceling its football game against Louisiana-Monroe on September 9 because of the impending Hurricane Irma.

Florida State will play 12 regular season games in 2017 after all.

Over the course of this season, that game did become more and more important considering the once playoff contending Seminoles limped into the month of November with a 2-5 record and the serious chance that their bowl and winning seasons streaks could be flying out the door.

"Any time we have the opportunity to play in Doak Campbell Stadium in front of our fans we are excited", Fisher said. "However, this week our complete focus is on Clemson".

The Warhawks of Louisiana Monroe are now 4-5 this season. Tickets and parking passes previously issued for the original September 9 game will be honored.

The Seminoles (3-5, 2-4 ACC) take on Clemson this week in their final ACC contest before dates with Delaware State and Florida.
