Jeff Shain, Miami Herald: Maybe it was only fitting that Paterno and Bowden wrestled a little longer by going well beyond regulation (registration).
John Romano, St. Petersburg Times: In the end, for Penn State, this was about finding glory. And for Florida State, it was about reliving misery.
Joe Henderson, Tampa Tribune: The Seminoles are not as bad as they look. Then again, they are not that good.
