2003: Florida State's Bobby Bowden passes Penn State coach Joe Paterno to become the winningest coach in major college football history with his 339th victory as the Seminoles beat Wake Forest 48-24. Bowden would finish his career in 2009 with 389 career wins, but Florida State was later forced to vacate 12 wins from the 2006 and 2007 seasons in relation to an academic scandal, dropping him to No. 2 behind Paterno with 377 wins. However, NCAA sanctions as a result of the Penn State child sex abuse scandal caused all of Paterno's wins from 1998 to 2011 to be vacated, lowering his total to 298 and leaving Bowden back on top of the list.
