Found December 01, 2012 on BCS Know How:
Florida State is back in a BCS bowl. For the first time since the 2006 Orange Bowl, the Seminoles will return to the group of five bowls that make up the BCS after an absence that knocked them from the ranks of the traditional BCS combatants. The Seminoles’ 21-15 victory over Georgia Tech in Saturday’s ACC Championship Game will send Florida State back to the BCS as the recipient of the ACC’s automatic BCS bowl bid. And because the Seminoles are not vying for the BCS national title, they will represent the conference in the Orange Bowl this year. The Seminoles can anticipate an at-large opponent or the Big East’s BCS representative, Louisville, to meet them in the New Year’s Day night game. Florida State went to a BCS bowl in six of the first eight years of the BCS era, but after Virginia Tech took over the Seminoles’ mantle as the perennial BCS combatant from the ACC, Florida State had a long break from the Bowl Championship Series.
