Sources: Florida State Confirmed For The Independence Bowl
So they don’t have Jimbo Fisher anymore...but this is still Florida State. A team that started the year in the Top 5 in the College Football rankings would have likely been in the mix for the ACC Championship or maybe even College Football Playoffs, if not for the loss of their starting quarterback Deondre Francois to injury. The rest of the talent on the field is elite caliber, and there are at least 3 high-end NFL Draft Prospects on their roster.
In other words, this is huge for the Independence Bowl.
