The Florida State Seminoles saw their 36-year Bowl streak end on Saturday at the hands of their arch rivals, the Florida Gators. It was a 41-14 by the Gators.
It is the first-time since the 1981 season that the team will not play in a Bowl game.
Taggart left the Oregon Ducks last off-season to take his dream job. He replaced Jimbo Fisher, who left to become the Texas A&M Aggies head coach.
First-year head coach Willie Taggart knew there was going to be a rebuild. However, he likely never expected it was going to be this bad.
Fisher went 5-6 with the team before Odell Haggins went 2-0 to end the season. Haggins guided the Seminoles to a 42-13 win over the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles on the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl on December 27th, 2017.
The year that the Seminoles did not make their last Bowl game, they went 6-5. Florida State was an independent at the time and there were not as many Bowl games as there is today.
In 1981, there were only five Bowl games. It was the Fiesta Bowl which the Penn State is Nittany Lions won 26-10 over the Southern California Trojans on January 1st, 1982 in Tempe, Arizona.
Also on January 1st, 1982, the Pittsburgh Panthers defeated the Georgia Bulldogs, 24/20. The Sugar Bowl was placed in New Orleans, Louisiana.
On December 31st, 1981, the West Virginia Mountaineers defeated the Florida Gators in the Peach Bowl. They won 26-6 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Liberty Bowl was played on December 30th, 1981. The Ohio State Buckeyes defeated the Navy Midshipmen, 31-28, in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Tangerine Bowl was the first Bowl game played in 1981, as it was played on December 19th. The Missouri Tigers defeated the Golden Eagles, 19-17, in Orlando, Florida.
