It is looking more and more likely that Florida State’s cancelled game against Louisiana-Monroe that was originally scheduled for September 9 will indeed be played.

School officials said on Wednesday that they would make a decision on whether or not the game would be played in the following week. Now, with the Seminoles’ road to a bowl a little clearer, there is now more of an incentive for them to move forward with the game.

The Seminoles defeated Syracuse 24-21 on Saturday behind a missed Orange field goal that would have sent the game to overtime. Their record now stands at 3-5, and while a loss to Clemson may be expected, their final two scheduled games are against against FCS Delaware State and a Florida team that got slaughtered by Missouri. That could encourage school officials to go ahead with rescheduling the game, especially since Florida State would be in a bowl game if they win out, even with a loss to the Tigers.

Nothing official yet … but with that win there’s 99.9 percent chance the Louisiana-Monroe game will be rescheduled for Dec. 2.
