TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State is on a six-game winning streak after sweeping NC State on the road last weekend as it hosts Virginia on April 25-26. The Seminoles also moved up in the USA Today/NFCA Top 25 Poll to No. 18 and found their way back onto the ESPN.com/USA Softball Poll at No. 24 with a 35-13 overall record and 11-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Virginia, which received one first-place vote in the ACC Preseason Poll, travels to Tallahassee at 2-12 in the ACC and 25-17 overall. The Cavs were swept by Georgia Tech in Charlottesville last weekend and trail the all-time series with the Noles, 15-59.
The double dip on Saturday will start at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday’s single game has been moved up to a Noon start.
With six conference games remaining before the ACC Tournament in Raleigh, N.C., on May 8-10, Florida State is on par to finish with the best ACC record in the program’s history. Prior to this season, the Noles’ top finish was 13-8 in 2007.
The entire three-game series will be on ACC Select as well as GameTracker live stats. Both can be found by logging onto www.seminoles.com.
