TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State soccer team is halfway through their fall slate, 4-0 on the year, and ranked second in the country.
The way the schedule is set up this year they play two matches, both either at home or both on the road, then have a week off between the next two.
The Noles are back on the road this week and first up is Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
The lay-off is not ideal, but Florida State is playing the hand they've been dealt.
"I think that we've gotten into a good rhythm here in terms of training and off days," said Mark Krikorian, the head soccer coach at Florida State. "Looking at Thursday-Sunday with Pitt and Virginia and having enough time to prepare for both teams having the extra time off. I haven't been frustrated by it at all and given the circumstance of where we are and what we're doing. All of us are pretty grateful about that."
The Seminoles play Pitt Thursday, then travel to Virginia Sunday.
