It's back to work today for the Florida State Seminoles.

FSU returns to bowl practice in Jacksonville following a quick break for Christmas.

The Seminoles have a team meeting and roll call scheduled for 1:30 p.m. That's followed by a brief media session at 3 p.m. and then practice at 3:20 at Bishop Kenny High School.

FSU is looking to end its season on a positive note in the Jan. 1 Gator Bowl against West Virginia.

Speculation remains rampant that FSU coach Bobby Bowden will make changes with his offensive staff at some point following the bowl game.

For 19 seniors, the Gator Bowl is their final game in an FSU uniform.

As the Seminoles have done the entire season, they are expected to rely on their defense against the Mountaineers.

FSU allowed only four rushing touchdowns, fewest in the country with California and Auburn.

The Seminoles have also allowed just seven passing touchdowns, which is also tied for the lowest in the nation with Virginia Tech, Maryland and Boston College.

Combined, no defense in the country has allowed fewer touchdowns (11) than FSU.

The Seminoles defense scored three times this year -- a fumble and interception return by Antonio Cromartie and an interception return by Leroy Smith.

FSU senior cornerback Bryant McFadden has not allowed a passing touchdown the past two seasons.

McFadden leads the Seminoles with 11 pass breakups.
