“Y’all gonna make me cry,” one FSU alum replied. “love the sportsmanship… thanks Deacs”
“Classy gesture & we surely appreciate it! Thank you from everyone at FSU Football,” wrote another.
“Staying classy @WakeForest,” a third fan replied. “Brings a tear to my eye….. FSU Class of ’85”
Bobby Bowden passed away in August following a terminal diagnosis back in July. During his legendary head coaching career, Bowden led the Seminoles to two national titles, 12 ACC titles and over 30 straight winning seasons.
No doubt there will be some kind of extra tribute made during the game. If anyone deserves more, it’s coach Bobby Bowden.
Wake Forest hosts Florida State at Truist Field this Saturday. The game will air on ACCNX and ESPN+ at 12 p.m. EST.
