FSU Emerald Bowl Central
Bobby Bowden has his 30th straight winning team at Florida State after the coach’s most frustrating squad put a fierce finish on a wild Emerald Bowl. Lorenzo Booker ran for 91 yards, caught five passes for 117 more and scored two touchdowns, leading the Seminoles to a 44-27 victory over UCLA on Wednesday night. The 77-year-old Bowden still hasn’t coached a club with a losing record since going 5-6 in his first season in Tallahassee. In a 21-point fourth quarter, Greg Carr caught a go-ahead, 30-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-9, and California native Booker capped his final college game with a key third-down catch and a 3-yard TD run with 6:17 left. Tony Carter’s 86-yard interception return for another score 37 seconds later capped an impressive finish for Florida State (7-6).
