TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Wrapping up a challenging stretch of five matches in five different cities over a span of eight days, RV Florida State (14-6, 8-3 ACC) is back on the road this weekend to take on Virginia Tech (9-14, 2-8 ACC) and High Point (16-9, 8-1 Big South) on November 1-2. FSU will play the Hokies on Friday at 6:00 p.m., while the match against the Panthers will be on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
“There were a few things over the past week that we have been struggling with, but we need to go into this weekend and play well on the road to continue to grow and develop,” said FSU head coach Chris Poole. “We will need to step up, execute and play better on the weekend, because on the road, anything can happen. We need to find ourselves, but I am glad that even though we are not playing great, we are continuing to play hard throughout the match.”
Florida State holds a 33-4 advantage in the all-time series against Virginia Tech, dating back to 1980. The Seminoles have won each of the last six matches in the series, but all four FSU losses have come on the road in Blacksburg – (2013, 2010, 2007 and 2004).
Saturday’s match against High Point will be the first time that the Seminoles and the Panthers will play each other in volleyball. Florida State is 10-0 all-time against current teams in the Big South Conference, with five wins against Winthrop, three versus UNC Asheville and one each against Charleston Southern and USC Upstate.
