Florida State kicks off another top 15 match up when they host the Blue Devils.

Seminoles.com

Florida State dropped it’s mid-week game against No. 1 Florida but the ‘Noles can still have an impressive week if they can take the series from Duke. Last week Duke dropped it’s first ACC series of the year when they lost 2-1 at Wake Forest. That was only Duke’s 2nd road ACC series in the year (their schedule is back loaded with all of their road series) and 3rd road series of the year. Florida State has lost it’s last 3 games. Something has to give.

FSU Overall: 24-10 // ACC: 8-7 // Home: 19-3 // Away: 5-6 // Neutral: 0-1 // Last 10: 5-5

Duke Overall: 27-6 // ACC: 10-5 // Home: 21-2 // Away: 7-5 // Neutral: 0-0 // Last 10: 8-2
