[WOMEN'S COLLEGE CUP: Florida State-Virginia Tech] One thing is certain about this year's Women's College Cup: a new champion will be crowned. Top-seeded Florida State, which finished No. 1 in the Soccer America rankings, has perhaps its best chance of winning the title but it must first get past Virginia Tech in their third meeting in season in Friday's first semifinal (TV: ESPNU, 5 pm ET). The Seminoles are unbeaten all-time against Virginia Tech with 13 wins and one tie in 14 meetings.

FLORIDA STATE. The Seminoles (22-1-3) are back at the College Cup for the third year in a row and seventh time in school history after defeating Boston College, 4-0, in the quarterfinals. Florida State has outscored its opposition, 16-1, in four tournament games.
 
FSU has won both meetings against Hokies: 2-1 in Blacksburg in the regular season and 1-0 in Cary in the ACC final.
 
Junior midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir, who missed part of the season on international duty with Iceland, leads all Seminoles players with nine points on four goals and one assist through the first four NCAA Tournament games.
 
Brynjarsdottir, who enters the College Cup as the team leader in points (32), goals (14) and game-winning goals (7), was joined on the NSCAA's All-Southeast Region first team by Kristin Grubka and Kassey Kallman, while Megan Campbell and goalie Kelsey Wys earned second-team honorees. Campbell, Grubka, Kallman and Wys have all played a key role in the defensive success of the Seminoles.

Both Brynjarsdottir and Campbell (Ireland) played in Women's World Cup qualifying in the fall.

With the quarterfinal win, the Hokies are 19-4-3, having set a new program record for victories in a single season. Tech has scored 54 goals, making it the highest-scoring offense in school history. Senior Jazmine Reeves andMurielle Tiernanlead the Hokies with 11 goals. Sophomore Ashley Meier sits just behind them with eight goals. Kelsey Loupee has nine assists to pace Virginia Tech.

Hokies coach Chugger Adair, who played in the men's final four at San Diego, is in only his third season at the helm.
