Night with ‘Noles
In-state matches are always high intensity with both teams pushing for state supremacy, but tonight’s volleyball match between South Florida and Florida State also pits two teams with momentum.
The Bulls (21-5) are on a two-match winning streak after defeating Houston 30-19, 30-26, 30-20 and TCU 30-27, 30-19, 30-28 this past weekend to extend their Conference USA-leading record to 8-0.

The Bulls defeated the Seminoles last season 3-1, but FSU leads the all-time series 32-4.
