Going 0-3 does not, in fact, help your position.

Duke at Florida State
The Seminoles host the Blue Devils

Florida State had a big chance to build their resume by hosting 4 games against ranked teams but a rain out and 3 losses turned their opportunity sour as FSU lost it’s 8th straight against Florida and dropped both games to Duke. The Seminoles are struggling right now and need to figure out how to end their 5 game losing streak and stop their slide in the polls.

Noteworthy

  • Florida State wasn’t the only ACC team that struggled this week. Division mate Clemson dropped a mid-week game to Georgia and the 1st 2 games of their home series against Miami before rebounding in the 2nd part of the Saturday double header to net 1 win for the week.
  • With Duke’s upward movement the ACC now has 2 teams in the top 10.
