Florida State Puts Bowden in Tie at Top

October 19, 2003|From Associated Press

Bobby Bowden isn't chasing Joe Paterno anymore.

Chris Rix threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Craphonso Thorpe and Xavier Beitia kicked four field goals Saturday night as No. 7 Florida State gave Bowden his 338th career coaching victory, 19-14, over Virginia in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Charlottesville, Va.

The victory moved Bowden, 73, into a tie with Paterno, 76, for first place on the Division I-A coaching victories list. Bowden is 338-97-4 in 38 seasons, 28 at Florida State. Paterno is 338-105-3 at Penn State, which did not play Saturday.

Florida State, 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, held Virginia (4-3, 3-2) to minus-5 rushing yards on only nine attempts.
