The No. 1 overall seed Florida State Seminoles soccer team is set to take on Milwaukee in FSU’s NCAA Tournament debut.
The Noles had a perfect 2020 season, going undefeated as they captured an ACC title over North Carolina. In 2021, they split a pair of scrimmages with the NWSL’s Orlando Pride while staying relatively low-key — that is, until today.
