Seminoles and Irish meet for fourth year in row
[FLORIDA STATE-NOTRE DAME PREVIEW] The Seminoles and Irish meet for the fourth straight year in the quarterfinals or later of the NCAA Women's Tournament when they play Friday at 2 pm at the Seminole Soccer Complex.
Notre Dame won in the 2006 semifinals, Florida State got revenge at the same stage in 2007, and the Irish won, 2-0, in South Bend last year to advance to the College Cup for the 10th time in school history.
Notre Dame (20-3-1) takes an 18-game unbeaten streak into the game. Florida State (19-4-1) has won all 13 games it's played in Tallahassee.
