The Seminoles enter the matchup riding a nine game winning streak and are coming off a series sweep against Virginia Tech. With the series sweep, FSU extends its ACC winning streak to 29 games. Freshman Sydney Sherrill leads the Noles batting .407 with 33 hits and 10 doubles. In the circle, redshirt senior Kylee Hanson has had an outstanding season with an 11-3 record and a 0.78 ERA through 80.2 innings of work.
