FSU is back out on the practice field today after two days off, following the Seminoles’ second scrimmage of the fall.

We’re now just 11 days out from FSU’s season opener vs. the LSU Tigersaccording to DraftKings, Florida State remains a 2.5-point underdog to LSU, with the over-under set at 57.

As we have been all offseason, we’re breaking down FSU’s schedule opponent-by-opponent. Yesterday was a look at the Pitt Panthers, who will try to rebuild one of the nation’s best defenses with six new starters.


The 2023 Florida State women’s basketball non-conference schedule is officially here, with an early-season matchup vs. the Tennessee Volunteers one of the marquee games:

The contest is one of three potential games against ESPN way-too-early opponents on the FSU non-conference schedule, which also includes a neutral-site matchup vs. UCLA on Dec. 10 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. Previously announced is a possible game against Stanford at the Ball Dawgs Classic in Las Vegas on Nov. 24 if both teams can reach the championship game.

The Seminoles could have as many as six non-conference games against Power 5 schools depending on tournament results. Overall, FSU plays a daunting 12-game schedule against non-ACC opponents that includes the annual Fresh From Florida Sunshine Showdown at Florida on Nov. 17, a game in Las Vegas against Northwestern on Nov. 22 and the inaugural ACC-SEC Challenge at home vs. Arkansas on Nov. 30.

“We have put together a very challenging non-conference schedule that will test our team right away,” FSU Head Coach Brooke Wyckoff said. “It’s one of the toughest non-conference schedules we’ve played since I’ve been coaching here, but it only serves to help us handle the rigors of another ACC season. Our fans will be seeing some great basketball at The Tuck this season.”

Florida State’s home schedule includes its season opener against Charleston Southern on Monday, Nov. 6, followed by the Tennessee game on Thursday, Nov. 9. The Lady Volunteers are ranked 12th in the ESPNW Way-Too-Early Preseason Rankings, reaching the NCAA Sweet 16 last year.

FSU hosts South Alabama on Sunday, Nov. 19, and plays its return game of a home-and-home series with Kent State on Dec. 3 at the Tucker Center. In last year’s game at Kent State, then-freshman Ta’Niya Latson dropped 34 points in what was the most points by an FSU freshman since Sue Galkantas in 1981.



Taylor Huff became the first player in school history to win ACC Player of the Week following their Florida State debut:

Huff was vital in the Seminoles’ two wins over Texas A&M and No. 9 TCU this past weekend. Huff recorded the game-winning goal against both the Aggies and the Horned Frogs. Against Texas A&M, Huff led the team with four shots, three of which were on goal, and slipped through the Aggie defense in the 86th minute to break the 1-1 tie to seal the win for the Seminoles.

Against TCU, Huff took just one shot, but she made it count as she dribbled through the entire defense and took a shot from just beyond the 25-yard mark that found the back of the net to give the Noles a 1-0 lead in the 70th minute. Just two and a half minutes later, Huff started the attack with a great ball to Jody Brown who sent one into the box for Onyi Echegini who converted to give the Noles a 2-0 lead.
