FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -Florida State coach Bobby Bowden is holding out hope that he won't be knocked out of the chase to become major college football's winningest coach.
The university is appealing NCAA sanctions that would force the football team to vacate 14 wins because of an academic cheating scandal. That would almost certainly move Bowden out of range to catch Penn State's Joe Paterno. Paterno has 383 wins, one more than Bowden.
The 79-year-old Bowden spoke Tuesday alongside sons Tommy, Terry and Jeff as part of a fundraising event for University of North Alabama athletics. Terry has returned to the Division II program after a decade-long hiatus from coaching.
Paterno said earlier this week he didn't think it was fair for the NCAA to take the wins away from the elder Bowden.
