(WTXL) Tallahasse, FLA Victoria Cowen, or Miss Florida, was in Tallahassee last night to cheer on the Seminoles at the Florida State vs. Clemson game. 

The former Golden Girl reunited with her old crew and spoke with us about her third place finish in last Sunday's pageant.

She said that her experience at the pageant was something she dreamed of her whole life, "it was truly a culmination of my whole life, like my dream since I was a little girl... I can't believe that I was there competing for Miss America, standing in that top five, it's a dream come true."

Cowen's platform issue at Miss America was One Chance, One Choice, a non-profit youth mentoring program.

She won a $10,000 scholarship for placing third in the competition.
