TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – After two road wins last weekend to push its unbeaten streak to a program-record 23 games, No. 1 Florida State (2-0-0) opens its 2015 home schedule with a Friday night match against Southeastern Louisiana (2-0-0) on August 28 at 7 p.m. The Seminoles are 115-9-4 (.914) all-time at home under head coach Mark Krikorian.

“We are a very resilient team and improved in several ways last weekend in New Mexico,” said Krikorian. “It is always great to play at home as we want it to be a difficult place for opponents to play. The fans do a wonderful job of coming out and supporting this program and I hope to see them out here on Friday.”

The Seminoles will kick off their nine-game home schedule against Southeastern Louisiana in what will be the second meeting between the two schools. FSU defeated the Lions, 4-1, in the opening round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Florida State is 47-1-1 in its last 49 matches at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Friday’s game will be broadcast live on ESPN3 and admission is free for all regular season home games at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

On Sunday, the Seminoles will wrap up the weekend and travel to No. 14/7 Florida (1-1-0) for a match at James G. Pressly Stadium on August 30 at 1 p.m. FSU trails UF, 10-12-0, all-time in the series, but the Noles have won three of the last four meetings. The last time that Florida State lost a soccer match was against the Gators on September 5, 2014. The Florida State/Florida matchup will broadcast live on the SEC Network.
