FSU mounted a furious second half effort to beat the UCLA Bruins 44-27 in the fifth annual Emerald Bowl. It also preserved Bobby Bowden's thirty year winning streak.
Lorenzo Booke, the only Nole from California,ran for 91 yards, caught five passes for 117 more and scored two touchdowns.In a 21-point fourth quarter, Greg Carr caught a go-ahead, 30-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-9 early, and Booker capped his final collegiate game with a key third-down catch and a 3-yard TD run with 6:17 left. Drew Weatherford overcame a shaky start to pass for 325 yards, including 126 in the fourth.
Tony Carter's 86-yard interception return for another score 37 seconds later capped an impressive finish for Florida State (7-6), which clinched Bobby Bowden's 20th bowl victory at the close of what he called his most trying season.
