We now know part of the softball schedule for Florida State in 2023.

From February 16-19 the ‘Noles will head to Clearwater, FL to match up against 5 out of 15 other teams.

The exact times and teams the ‘Noles will be facing is still unknown, but the field looks familiar for Team 40.

In 2021, FSU faced 10 of the teams set to be in Clearwater for the upcoming season. Out of the 9, they played 3 of those games in the tournament.

In the first year of the tournament, FSU faced six teams, coming out with a 5-0 record. They took wins from Ohio State, Oklahoma, LSU, Minnesota, FAU and a primetime game from Tennessee.

In 2020, 5 games were played again but with a different result than the first year. The ‘Noles dropped their first three games against Washington, Minnesota and Northwestern. On the final day they took a game from Liberty before falling to UCLA in the nightcap.

Last season, in 2021, another 5-0 record came from the team. This time around, every win was against a ranked opponent in Tennessee, Texas, Michigan, UCF, and UCLA.
