FSU football got a win over Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl Wednesday. We take a look at the five impact players for FSU in the game.

FSU football opened as two touchdown favorites over Southern Mississippi for a reason, and they showed why in a dominant 42-13 win.

It was a game they could have scored 50+ if they wanted but decided to run the clock near the end of the game.

The win helped FSU extend its streak of winning seasons to 41 consecutive years, the longest active streak in the NCAA.

It was their fourth consecutive win and second win with interim head coach Odell Haggins who’ll go down as the FSU coach with the highest winning percentage in school history (2-0).

This bowl game gave a lot of hope for FSU football fans going into next season. The team has seemed to play totally different since the departure of the former head coach.

Players seem to be having fun again, playing with more confidence and even executing better on both sides of the ball.

There were a number of players that stood out in the game, but we could only choose five impact players from the game.

Let’s get into it.
