TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Starting the second half of the 2016 ACC regular season, No. 8 Florida State (31-4, 10-1 ACC) travels to play a three-game series with Boston College (20-15, 4-5 ACC) at Shea Field on April 16-17. The Seminoles lead the ACC standings this season and have won 17 of their last 18 conference games, dating back to 2015.
“I’m looking forward to an exciting weekend up in Boston,” said FSU head coach Lonni Alameda. “Getting back into ACC play is fun opportunity to take on the challenge of a three-game series and make adjustments and get better as a team. We’ve had successes in a lot of different areas recently, but are still working on putting them all together at the same time.”
The Seminoles lead the all-time series with Boston College, 32-2, and have won each of the last 25 matchups, including all 23 games between FSU and BC under Alameda.

Several Seminoles are among the top 10 in the ACC, with Alex Powers leading the ACC with a .458 batting average and Morgan Klaevemann topping the conference with a .561 one base percentage.
