The nation's longest bowl streak just got snapped. On Saturday afternoon, the Florida Gators handed Florida State its seventh loss on the season - eliminating it from bowl contention.

The Seminoles entered the season making a bowl every year since 1981, but Willie Taggart's first season as the team's head coach failed to yield a postseason appearance.

Not the way you want to start your career with a new school. Florida dominated from the opening whistle to the tune of a 41-14 win.

Florida moves to 9-3 on the year, while the Seminoles fall to 5-7.

Florida State already saw its bowl streak come to an end, and another top program could fail to reach a bowl game as well. USC sits at 5-6 on the year and takes on Notre Dame later tonight.
