Previewing Virginia vs. Florida State
The ACC regular season title and No. 1 seed in the ACC women’s soccer tournament are on the line when No. 1 Virginia and No. 3 Florida State meet up in Tallahassee.
The former-No. 1 Seminoles come into this game following their first loss of the 2021 season. They fell to Duke, 1-0, on Sunday, Oct. 24. With the ‘Noles returning home they will have their home crowd behind them. FSU is 178-15-9 at home since 2005 when Mark Krikorian became head coach, and they are currently undefeated in Tallahassee this season (8-0-0).
The Cavaliers took the top spot in the most recent rankings after convincing wins over Louisville (4-1) and Miami (6-1). Those two wins have guaranteed them at least a share of the ACC regular season title even if they were to lose to Florida State. A Virginia win or tie would clinch the ACC crown outright.
As of right now Virginia’s Diana Ordonez leads the ACC in goals with 13 and will win the regular-season scoring title for the conference. If FSU’s Beata Olsson (11) scores two goals on Thursday, she will match Ordonez. With three or more Olsson will take the lead.
- Virginia leads the series at 21-9-7.
- The Cavaliers are 6-2-3 in games at Florida State
- In the last 25 meetings, 19 of them have been decided by one point or have been a draw.
- FSU won the last two meetings in 2020. A 4-3 win at UVA and a 0-0 draw that went to PKs in the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament which the ‘Noles won 3-0.

What the polls say
Florida State had been No. 1 the entire season, starting 14-0. But a draw and loss dropped the Seminoles to third in the latest United Soccer Coaches poll. That moved ACC rival — and Thursday foe — Virginia to the top spot.
