TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The scene seems almost too familiar; Florida State facing a must-win in their final game of the season or their historic bowl streak goes out the window.
Last year, the Seminoles had to defeat Louisiana-Monroe in a make-up game after the original date was postponed due to Hurricane Irma.
This year, it's a little different, as the only thing standing between the Noles and their bowl streak being extended is their arch rival, the Florida Gators.
FSU has won five-straight games in the series, but the Gators enter this year's matchup with eight wins.
The Noles say while the 2018 season wasn't the type they had in mind, getting a win against UF would put a cherry on top of a bumpy regular season.
"For us, it's our rival," said FSU head coach Willie Taggart. "These seniors, it's their last game in Doak. Our seniors and our football team have a chance to go bowling. For our seniors to finish off their career never losing to Florida, there's a lot to play for."
Kickoff between the Noles and Gators is set for 12 p.m. on Saturday.
