The Florida State Seminoles baseball team (24-15, 11-10 ACC) is back in Tallahassee this weekend with a big series matchup. The Seminoles are looking for a bounce back weekend after their series loss against Clemson. FSU will be playing host to a top-10 ranked Texas Christian Horned Frogs baseball squad (27-14, 12-6 Big 12).

The Frogs have won six of their last eight with wins over No. 3 ranked Oklahoma State and a series sweep over No. 4 Texas Tech. Overall, Texas Christian has picked up a record of 8-8 on the road this year. The TCU offense has been a patient one drawing 229 walks this season, which is ninth nationally.

FSU announced a minor shake-up in their pitching rotation this weekend. Bryce Hubbart and Carson Montgomery will be flipped in their starting roles to give Hubbart an extra day of rest after being ill earlier in the week.

The ‘Noles have won 7 of their last 10 games and 7 of 10 weekend series. This weekend presents FSU with an opportunity to make a statement to the pollsters and the NCAA for regional selections. The Seminoles staff is second in the country with 11.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
