Heels, Noles schedule non-conference game to close year

Posted May 9, 2013

— Florida State will make a trip to Chapel Hill after all as the Seminoles and top-ranked North Carolina will play a non-conference game at Bosmer Stadium to close out the year.

UNC head coach Mike Fox announced the addition to the Tar Heels schedule Thursday. The game is scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch on May 20.

Because of ACC scheduling quirks, UNC and No. 7 FSU have not played since 2011. Florida State is not scheduled to come to Chapel Hill next year for football or basketball.

"We are excited that we were able to get this game together," Fox said. "We both had a game to play and it is a great opportunity to play one of the top teams in the country. It should be a great test for our team heading into the ACC Tournament."

Florida State (40-9, 16-8 ACC) is currently atop the ACC Atlantic Division by a half game over NC State and Clemson. FSU and NC State will play a pivotal series this weekend in Raleigh before the Seminoles host Clemson the following weekend.

UNC also has a tough close to their season with a trip to Georgia tech this weekend and a three game set with Virginia May 16-18. UNC (44-4, 19-3 ACC) holds a three game lead over Virginia in the Coastal Division.

"It worked out perfectly for us to play," said Florida State head coach Mike Martin. "We are both short a game and why wait when we both welcome the opportunity to play."

The ACC Tournament begins May 22 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

    One big correction to make. The Diamond HEELS play at Boshamer Stadium, not Bosmer Stadium as your first paragraph reads.

    true...fsu has the most appearances by an acc team with no titles at 21, clemson second with 12 and unc third with 9...the only thing legendary about acc baseball, when it comes to the cws, is legendary futility

    What? You know that the ACC makes the conference schedule, right? It is not up to the individual schools to schedule conference opponents in any sport. No one is dodging anyone.

    A good matchup. Glad both decided to do it.

    Legendary? You have to win at least one CWS first!

    Easy answer.....FSU doesn't want to play basketball as they had a one year wonder and beat the doodoo out of us (once). They don't want to play FB because to lose would be embarrassing (in theory) and winning gets them nothing in their (rose colored) eyes. I would welcome the match up though. Both schools have legendary baseball programs so it stands to reason to play the best if you can. Hence, here comes FSU BB to Chapel Hill. And like 'cat' already mentioned could be a warm-up to the ACC Championship game.

    GO HEELS!!
