In the 2 p.m. Friday matchup, No. 2 seed Purdue takes on No. 3 seed Houston.

The fourth-seeded Seahawks (37-21) dropped both regular season meetings with the Pirates, the No. 12 overall national seed, in mid-week showdowns.

UConn hosted a regional in 2010, the year it won a school record 48 games.

Nine of the program's 20 postseason appearances have gone through Tallahassee, Fla., including last year's, when the Tigers came within one out of defeating the Seminoles and advancing to a Super Regional for the first time since 1999.

Mendoza's bases-loaded, two-run double snapped a tie game in the top of the 10th, keying the sixth-seeded Seminoles to an 11-8 win over fifth-seeded Louisville in Sunday's tournament title game at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. OSU is a third seed for the third time in those sixth seasons, including a year ago, and is seeking its third super regional appearance in the past five seasons. We've got a tough Regional here but we wouldn't expect it any other way. The victor goes on to the Super Regionals next weekend. The ACC Tournament championship is the eighth for FSU. "A little bit under the radar and maybe a little bit of the underdog and a little bit of the chip on your shoulder". "And we've got a real home field advantage".


Catcher Cal Raleigh had a two-run double in the first inning, which helped him earn Most Valuable Player for the ACC tournament. The victor of the double-elimination regional earns a spot in the NCAA Super Regionals.

"I'm not surprised. I don't really worry too much about that".

With 22 victories on the road, and 11 against top-50 and 22 against top-100 RPI teams, UConn rose to No. 16 in the RPI, but not good enough for the selection committee to name them one of 16 hosts. "We had a great regular season".

Florida State's 10th-inning flurry capped an up-and-down afternoon in which each side took turns seizing and then relinquishing an apparent upper hand. At each site, two teams play in a best-of-three tournament format.

"I think the thing that's overlooked is we won all those Tuesday games where people lose those games across the country", Casey said.
