Tallahassee, Fl. - Florida State holding a walk through in their San Francisco hotel before Wednesday night's Emerald bowl game against UCLA.
At 6-6, the Seminoles are playing for more than pride.
A loss to the Bruins will give FSU their first losing season since Bobby Bowden's first year in Tallahassee more than 30 years ago.
It will also be the first time in 20 years that the Seminoles will not be ranked at the end of the season.
It is not the kind of legacy that this year's senior class wants to be remembered.
And that is why the FSU seniors desperately want their final collegiate game to end on a winning note. S
enior running back Lorenzo Booker said "It will be the 31st straight winning season here. I think everybody around here is tired of setting records for negativity. We have got to keep one of the streaks going.
Senior linebacker Buster Davis said "We want to go out 7-6. It is not the best record in the world but it is a winning record. You don't want to leave the field, leave Florida State being a loser. So, you want to win so."
Wednesday's Emerald Bowl game is the first ACC/Pac 10 matchup in the six year history of the game.
