As the final minutes ticked away, the Florida State crowd started chanting “Bobby Bowden! Bobby Bowden!” Forty-four years after coaching his first college game, Bowden reached the pinnacle Saturday. He became major college football’s winningest coach with his 339th career victory and clinched at least a tie for another Atlantic Coast Conference title as sixth-ranked Florida State kept its national title hopes alive with a 48-24 victory over Wake Forest. “It’s just something that happened,” said Bowden, who has been reluctant to talk about surpassing longtime coaching friend Joe Paterno of Penn State. “I’m kind of uncomfortable about it because it ain’t over. I expect Joe to come back and he will and I’ll do the best I can do.”
