*BREAKING NEWS* FSU's Bowden to Retire Tomorrow

After 34 seasons on the sidelines of Florida State University, head coach Bobby Bowden is expected to announce his retirement tomorrow according to an ESPN.com report, citing unnamed sources.

Bowden is the 2nd all time winningest coach in NCAA history with 388 victories, but since winning the ACC title back in 2005 (the first year of expansion), the 'Noles have struggled both within the conference and on a national scale. The team finished just 6-6 on the year including a season ending 37-10 loss to rival Florida.

In it's heyday, the Seminoles put together one of the greatest runs in the history of the sport. From 1987-2000 the team finished in the top 5 every single season including national championships in 1993 and 1999.

Boston College was 3-2 against Florida State since joining the ACC in 2005, including a 28-21 win this season which marked the first home victory by either team since the expansion.
