TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – No. 3 Florida State (7-0) returns home this weekend for a three-game series against No. 25 Georgia (6-3) before making the trek east on I-10 to face Jacksonville on Monday, March 8.
The Seminoles knocked off undefeated Florida on Tuesday down in Tampa in the inaugural Florida Four Tournament played on Steinbrenner Field to remain unbeaten on the year.
Florida State and Georgia meet for the third year in a row and for the fourth time in five years as the Seminoles host the Bulldogs for a three-game series beginning Friday in Tallahassee. FSU leads the all-time series 31-24, while also holding the upper hand at home posting a mark of 17-12. The Seminoles have won the last two meetings including last year’s showdown in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional – an 8-2 victory by the Garnet & Gold. This weekend’s series marks just the second time since 1987 that these two schools are meeting during the regular season. Seven of the last nine games have come in the NCAA Tournament with UGA owning a 4-3 record.
On Monday, Florida State and Jacksonville square-off in the first of three meetings in 2010. The Seminoles lead the all-time series 113-36, while maintaining a mark of 38-25 in games played on Alexander Breast Field inside John Sessions Stadium.
