OMAHA, Ne. (WCTV) -- The Florida State baseball team has seen this movie before. It was only 16 days ago when the Seminoles opened up Regional play in Tallahassee by getting upset by Tennessee Tech.

With their backs against the walls, FSU would go on to win four straight games to win the Regional.

So here we go again. Every game is now win or go home for the Seminoles.

But they're aren't discouraged. They're used to dealing with adversity.

"Last night after the loss we said this is what we wanted anyway," said FSU designated hitter Quincy Nieporte. "We wanted a bit more drama, stay together and see what happens. I'm excited to play the next game, I'm excited to practice today, I mean it's just a baseball party out here."

The Seminoles must win four straight games in order to make it to the College World Series finals. It's a tall task, but head coach Mike Martin says there's no reason to be upset when you still have a chance.

"We're in Omaha, baby,” Martin said. “We're still playing baseball. What is there to be down about?”

Florida State will look to keep it's season alive on Monday when it faces Cal State Fullerton at 2 p.m. ET in an elimination game.
