Florida State was the team that other programs would hope to draw for homecoming games before 1976, when Bobby Bowden took the reins of a shamed program.
Now FSU consistently ranks as one of the better programs in the history of college football, and with two Heisman trophy winners and two national championships, it is easy to understand why.
