TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Florida State women’s soccer team is the number one overall seed in the 2021 NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament and will open their run to a third championship against South Alabama in the first round.

This is the second-straight year FSU is the tournament’s top overall seed.

The Seminoles took down then-first ranked Virginia, 1-0, Sunday in the ACC title game.

FSU went 16-1-2 this season, with their lone loss coming at sixth-ranked Duke, 1-0, on October 24.

The Seminoles and Jaguars met earlier this season, with FSU notching a 4-0 victory in Tallahassee. FSU leads the all-time series against South Alabama, 11-1, including a 2-0 victory in the 2019 tournament.

A date and time for the first-round matchup has yet to be decided.
