Southern Miss is a program that relishes its opportunities against Power Five opponents, but the talent gap was too much for the Golden Eagles to overcome on Wednesday.

He'll stay on new Florida State coach Willie Taggart's staff too.

Florida State will be looking to end the season on a high note to build some momentum for the beginning of the Taggart era.

Southern Miss took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter after a 63-yard touchdown drive that was aided by two 15-yard Florida State penalties, one for unsportsmanlike conduct and the other for roughing the kicker. Josh is now a member of the FWAA and USBWA. Top-ranked safety Derwin James, defensive end Josh Sweat and linebacker Matthew Thomas have all chosen to skip the last game in a disappointing season to avoid risking injury.

During his time at Florida State, Haggins has coached 17 defensive linemen that have been selected in the NFL Draft, including first-round selections Brodrick Bunkley in 2006, Travis Johnson in 2005, Corey Simon in 2000 and Andre Wadsworth in 1998.

But following the game, Haggins has been uniquely tasked with helping the Seminoles prepare for their nation-leading 36th consecutive bowl game - a streak he was a part of as a player from 1986-89 and as FSU's longest tenured assistant coach since 1994.

"They won their last three ball games, a very convincing win over Florida", Hopson said. It's the second time a new FSU coach has retained Haggins, who has played and coached at FSU for a combined 27 years.

"I think he just wanted to talk and run a couple of things by me". "We going to out there and hopefully get a victory tomorrow".

"I played in the game, but we're talking about now", he said.

"This year didn't turn out the way any of us expected it, but I'm sure he wants to be an important part of getting the resurgence we need now".

The game features a couple of outstanding running backs in FSU's Cam Akers and Southern Miss' Ito Smith. Blackman was thrown into the fire, and was a deer in headlights behind a lackluster offensive line that was a big reason that the Seminoles sputtered to a 6-6 regular season record.
