    What They Said About The Noles Win Over WMU

    "The Broncos' 28-20 loss to Florida State was the most complete performance by WMU this season. Sure, there were mistakes against a defense faster than any to grace the MAC. Yes, the defense couldn't shut down a Seminoles offense that has struggled much of this season."
    Graham Couch, Kalamazoo Gazette

    "Backup quarterback Xavier Lee tossed two touchdown passes to Greg Carr, Lawrence Timmons scored on a 22-yard interception return, and Florida State beat Western Michigan 28-20 Saturday to become bowl eligible....Florida State (6-5) has gone to bowls for 24 straight seasons and needed a win in one of its final two games to keep the streak alive. The Seminoles host archrival Florida next Saturday."

    "FSU (6-5) will play in a bowl game for a 24th consecutive season - either the Emerald Bowl or the MPC Computers Bowl. The destination will depend on the Virginia-Virginia Tech game this week. Western Michigan didn't make it easy in putting together an eight-play, 43-yard touchdown drive that was set up by yet another breakdown on FSU's kickoff team. Brandon West returned four of Graham Gano's linedrive kicks for 158 yards, including the 65-yarder that led to Herb Martin's 10-yard reception that cut the lead to 28-20 with 12:44 remaining."

    "A sigh of relief replaced what might normally have been a "Bring On the Gators" cheer. Florida comes to town for next week's season finale. FSU will settle for a less-than-luxurious bowl destination, which they sealed with the victory over the 7-4 Broncos, who boast the best record of any team FSU has defeated this season.

    Coming into the season we thought we were going to be high-ranked and go to a BCS bowl," said FSU quarterback Xavier Lee, who threw a pair of touchdown passes to Greg Carr in relief of starter Drew Weatherford. "But things changed and we've tried to make the best out of it. I guess you've got to get knocked down in order to get back up."

    "Florida State will go to a bowl for a 25th consecutive season, after securing its sixth victory in the 11th game of the season Saturday, with a 28-20 win over Western Michigan.

    "Yeah, it's nice to know you've qualified for a bowl," FSU coach Bobby Bowden said. "It's not what it has been lately. By the seventh game we usually have that wrapped up."
