About 6200 Noles will be crossing the stage this weekend and receiving their diplomas from FSU.

The commencement speakers this year are: Evolutionary Biologist Edward Wilson, U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Francisco Sánchez and ESPN sportscaster Lee Corso.

When the three speakers were asked to share experiences about their start in life... ESPN host of College Gameday Lee Corso shared a particularly special memory.

"In fact, this is a true story. In 1957 I coached against a guy named Bobby Bowden at South Georgia Junior College. He was the head coach at South Georgia Junior College, and I was the head coach of a Florida freshmen team and Bobby Bowden and I became friends from that moment on," says Corso.

Wilson spoke at tonight's graduation. Sanchez and Corso will be speaking at Saturday's graduation.
