TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Looking to start a new ACC winning streak, No. 13 Florida State (34-7, 11-1 ACC) will hit the road this weekend for a three-game series at Boston College (21-15, 8-3 ACC) on April 13-14. The original three-day series has been moved to a doubleheader on Friday beginning at 4:00 p.m., with a single game on Saturday at 2:30 p.m., due to weather in the forecast for Sunday.
Boston College will be dedicating its new stadium at the Brighton Athletic Village during Saturday’s game and enters the weekend on a 12-game winning streak, which is a school record. The previous longest winning streak was 10 games, which was set in 1995.
“Boston College is no joke,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “They have some pitchers that throw hard and it is going to be a quick turnaround for us from Florida last night. So it doesn’t get any easier for us as we go through the rest of the season, but hopefully with the confidence we’ve been able to build over the course of year things can come a little easier.”
Florida State leads the all-time series against Boston College, 35-2, and has won the last 28 games in the matchup, The Noles are an undefeated 10-0 against the Eagles on the road, and the last loss was a 6-1 defeat in Tallahassee on March 29, 2008.
The Noles are unbeaten in their last 45 conference series, posting a 41-0-4 mark against ACC foes, including 34 sweeps. Over that span, FSU posted a 1-1 series split versus Virginia Tech (2014), at Notre Dame (2014), at Louisville (2015) and at Notre Dame (2016). The Seminoles are 118-11 in their last 129 ACC regular season games (.915%) and last lost a conference series at Maryland on May 5-6, 2012.
Florida State has won 22 of its last 23 games overall and recently ended a 36-game winning streak in ACC regular season play which is the fifth-longest conference winning streak in NCAA history.
