Sweepstakes Recaps an Exciting Start to the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl
On Sunday, December 6, the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl announced that West Virginia University will play Florida State University in the January 1, 2010, Konica Minolta Gator Bowl.
The West Virginia Mountaineers, the Big East Conference representative, finished their regular season with an overall record of 9-3. This match-up will mark West Virginia's fourth New Year's Day trip to Jacksonville in seven seasons, and its first since beating Georgia Tech in 2007. In total, this marks the team’s eighth-consecutive bowl appearance and third under Bill Stewart, who was named Head Coach after leading West Virginia to a 48-28 victory over Oklahoma in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl.
The Florida State Seminoles, the Atlantic Coast Conference representative, will make their seventh appearance in the Gator Bowl Classic and their fifth appearance under Coach Bobby Bowden. As extra incentive for the Seminoles, Bowden will coach his final game with the 2010 Konica Minolta Gator Bowl. During his 44 years of coaching (34 at Florida State), Coach Bowden is the second winningest coach in major college football history with 388 career coaching victories.
