After dropping Week 13's Sunshine State rivalry to the No. 11 Florida Gators 41-14, the Florida State Seminoles have dropped to 5-7 on the season and will also miss a bowl game for the first time since 1982.
For the first time in 36 years, Florida State will not be going bowling https://t.co/cP6r33phBG— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) November 24, 2018
Reminder that Bama-Auburn in their storied history have only met 6 times with both ranked in the top 10.— Bandit (@DirtySouthGator) November 24, 2018
Florida-Florida State did it 13 straight games from 90-01. That’s where this rivalry used to be and what it meant to college football.
The intrastate rivalry between Florida and Florida State has been one of the most competitive in all of college football, even with the Noles winning the previous six games in a row.
However, after Saturday's blunder, the Virginia Tech Hokies now own the record for the longest active bowl game appearances at 25 – a staggering 11 fewer years than FSU's record.
But the Hokies are battling to keep their own streak alive as well. After Virginia Tech lost a matchup against East Carolina from its schedule due to Hurricane Florence's weather conditions on Sept. 15, the Hokies have now added a game to their schedule against Marshall at home for Saturday, Dec. 1.
Imagine if Virginia Tech ends up playing this 12th game and loses to Marshall.— Kevin McGuire (@KevinOnCFB) November 18, 2018
If the Hokies (5-6) can get the best of Marshall next weekend, Virginia Tech will salvage a 6-6 record and bowl eligibility to keep the streak alive this season.
