TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State coach Bobby Bowden will have to wait a little longer to find out if he'll lose up to 14 victories.

The NCAA gave its Committee on Infractions another week until June 2 to respond to Florida State's appeal of sanctions resulting from an academic cheating scandal.

They include taking as many as 14 wins off Bowden's coaching record. That would make it difficult for Bowden to catch Penn State's Joe Paterno in their race for most victories among major college coaches.

The 82-year-old Paterno has 383 wins - one ahead of Bowden, who will turn 80 in November.

Bowden is due to be replaced by coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher by the 2011 season. Fisher is Florida State's offensive coordinator.
