Trouble is, only one will get the chance. Top-ranked Florida State (11-1) has the inside track after beating No. 7 Florida 33-21 on Saturday in Gainesville, Fla., where the Gators had won 23 in a row. The fifth-ranked Mountaineers (11-0) made their case Friday with a 17-14 victory over No. 11 Boston College. Both teams have strong arguments. Florida State may have played the toughest schedule in the country, while West Virginia is the only undefeated team besides No. 2 Nebraska (11-0) to be eligible for a bowl. But Florida State appears to have the inside track because of its position in the bowl coalition poll, a combination of The Associated Press media and USA Today-CNN coaches' rankings that determines the major bowl matchups. The Seminoles were No. 2 in last week's coalition poll, 162 points ahead of No. 3 West Virginia and 68 points behind No. 1 Nebraska. Despite West Virginia's comeback victory over Boston College the only team to beat Notre Dame this year it will be difficult for the Mountaineers to pass Florida State when the new polls are released Sunday. West Virginia coach Don Nehlen said it would be "the biggest crime ever perpetrated on a college football team" if his Mountaineers didn't get to play Nebraska. However, Florida State coach Bobby Bowden declined to lobby for his team after Saturday's win. "I don't have to say anything," he said. "I'll let them vote whatever they think. People saw us play. We were on television enough times this year." Nehlen sat in front of the television, rooting against Florida State. But Nehlen and his Mountaineers instead found themselves waiting on Sunday's polls to see if they have a shot at the national title by claiming a No. 1 or No. 2 ranking. "There are two undefeated teams, so I would think that's where we would be, but I question if we'll be there," Nehlen said. "I thought Florida State was impressive, yet Florida was one play from turning that game around. "I'm too old to be angry," he said. "Our problem is we started from nowhere, and when you have to start from nowhere you have to prove to everybody you belong. If you start at the top, you have to prove you don't belong. There's a big difference." If Florida State plays Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, West Virginia probably will meet Texas A&M in the Cotton. The Sugar Bowl would then match Notre Dame against the winner of next week's Southeastern Conference championship game between Florida and Alabama. UCLA will play Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl if the Badgers beat Michigan State in Tokyo next Saturday. If Wisconsin loses, Ohio State will play UCLA. At A Glance ; -,-jf "'""':.., " V -rlniaV't -j ' AP Florida State coach Bobby Bowden discusses a penalty with an official Saturday in his Seminoles' 33-21 victory over Florida. Willie Jackson set a Florida record with 23 career touchdown catches, breaking the mark he shared with Wes Chandler. SCORING STARS Charlie Ward, Florida State, completed 38 of 53 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns in a 33-21 victory over Florida. Kerry Collins, Penn State, completed 23 of 42 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns In a 38-37 victory over Michigan State. Charlie Garner, Tennessee, rushed for 151 yards on 16 carries and scored one of the Volunteers' eight touchdowns in a 62-14 rout of Vanderbilt. STREAKS a Florida had Its 23-game home winning streak, which was the second longest in the nation behind Miami, snapped with a 33-21 loss to Florida State. The Gators last home toss was in 1989, also to Ftori- da State. SLUMPS Texas El-Paso ended the season with 10 straight losses, allowing an average of more than 40 points during the streak. SCHOOL RECORDS Charlie Want set three Florida State passing records against Florida: completions in a game (38), touchdowns In a season (27) and career completions (473). a Tennessee averaged 42.8 points per game this season to break the school record of 41 .6 set In 1914. STUFFED : a Florida was held to a school-record low minus-33 yards rushing In a 33-21 loss to Florida State. Errfct Rhett came in averaging 119 yards per game, but managed lust seven yards on seven carries. SUB-PAR a Tennessee's Heath Shuler had his poorest passing day of the season, completing 10 of 19 passes for 131 yards against Vanderbilt Shuler had been averaging 30 completions and 247 yards per oame. SHORT LIST a Florida State coach Bobby Bowden won his 238th career game, tying him with Woody Hayes for fifth on the all-time list. . - - . SIDELINED a Florida's freshman quarterback Danny Wuerffel twisted his knee near the end of the first half against Florida State. Seminoles From page one back to Tallahassee, it seemed perfectly obvious. The Seminoles will find out Sunday if the pollsters do the expected and pit them against top-ranked Nebraska in the Orange Bowl. "The people who picked us preseason No. 1 they were mostly correct," Bowden said. "We still haven't done it yet." The Seminoles made a convincing case in one of college football's more intimidating venues, where Florida had mugged four top 5 teams during a 23-game win streak. Florida State wide receiver Matt Frier, who made 11 catches despite being weakened by a stomach virus, said: "Look, we were No. 2, and we beat one of the best football teams in the country at their home. I think that answered a lot of questions." The Seminoles silenced well, quieted, at least a manic Florida Field throng of 85,507, the biggest crowd to see a football game in the state. They did it on the arm of quarterback Charlie Ward, who dispatched any lingering doubts about the Heisman Trophy by completing 38 of 53 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions, one in the end zone. "Certainly, he is the Heisman winner," said Gators coach Steve Spurrier, who won the award himself in 1966. "Their defense is so good, but he makes their offense go." Their defense? All it did was hold Gators running back Errict Rhett to 7 paltry yards on seven carries. "Our No. 1 goal of the week was to stop Rhett," Bowden said. "By stopping him, I meant hold him to 100 yards." Put "Ward and this defense together and you have a team that deserves a shot at the national title. But the Seminoles also showed their mettle under fire. Florida State romped to a 27-7 lead after three quarters, but then the Gators rallied on two touchdown throws by backup quarterback Terry Dean. The second was a 31-yarder to Jack Jackson. That catch, with 5:58 to go, seemed to wipe away all of Florida State's early domination. "The momentum had swayed," Ward said. When the Gators batted down Ward's first two throws, the Seminoles were reeling, and Florida fans were screaming for blood. But on third-and-10 from Florida State's 21, Ward faked a handoff to tailback Warrick Dunn and looked downfield. His first target was wide receiver Kez McCor-vey. But Ward, fearing another deflection, drifted out of the pocket and flipped to Dunn, one-on-one with linebacker Ed Robinson. Wideout Tamarick Vanover helped spring Dunn with a nice block on a defensive back. Florida's speedy Michael Gilmore put a fingertip on Dunn's heels as he flew by, but as Dunn breezed down the sideline, the Seminoles realized that they had cleared one more hurdle to that elusive national title. "I started celebrating at about the 5-yard line," Dunn said. "I knew we were going to win this game." NCAA PLAYOFFS Boston U. Wins In 2nd OT, Advances In Div. I-AA By The Associated Press Neither team could make a field goal in two overtimes. So, unbeaten Boston University solved that problem. The Terriers (12-0) scored on Zack Bur-well's 4-yard run in the second overtimefor a 27-21 victory over Northern Iowa on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Division I-AA football tournament. The run came after Northern Iowa (8-4) blocked a BU field-goal attempt, but the Terriers got a second chance on a facemask penalty that gave them a first down. Boston U. also had an earlier field goal attempt blocked in overtime, while Northern Iowa's Scott Obermeir missed one from 20 yards and had one block fa The Terriers, down 21-6 at one point, tied the score with 3:14 remaining when quarterback Robert Dougherty's 5-yard scramble completed a 12-play, 92-yard drive. Dougherty then passed to Jason Andrade for a 2-point conversion. I-AA quarterfinals will be played next Saturday. In other Division I-AA first-round games, it was Georgia Southern 14, Eastern Kentucky 12; Youngtown State 56, Central Florida 30; Marshall 28, Howard 14; Delaware 49, Montana 48; and Troy State 42, Stephen F.
