Game 1: No. 5 Florida State Seminoles (4-0) vs Troy Trojans (4-1)

Florida State received some devastating news this week as their most valuable player’s year was over after playing just one game. Florida State announced earlier today that the preseason All-American, and Golden Spikes Award nominee will undergo surgery on Thursday morning to repair a torn UCL. Recovery timelines for Tommy John surgery vary, however, in a best-case scenario Holton will resume throwing activities in 6-7 months before possibly returning to action after 9-10 months of rehab.

FSU will throw Cole Sands, Drew Parrish and freshmen Austin Pollock this weekend against Troy.
