CHARLOTTESVILLE – The second-ranked Virginia women’s soccer team will play its first ranked opponent of the season Sunday as it visits No. 5 Florida State. Game time at the Seminole Soccer Complex is 4 p.m., and the game will be televised live on ESPNU.

Virginia (10-0, 2-0 ACC) is the only remaining undefeated and untied team in the nation. The Cavaliers are coming off a 5-0 victory over Wake Forest Thursday at Klöckner Stadium. Senior Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) had two goals and an assist to lead Virginia to its 26th consecutive home win.

The Cavaliers lead the ACC in scoring at 3.60 goals per game and are the only team in the nation to score at least two goals in every game this season. Virginia has 13 goal scorers this season, including 11 players with at least two goals on the year. Junior Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.) leads the team with six goals and 17 points, while senior Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.) has a team-high seven assists.

Virginia enters the game riding a 17-game ACC regular season win streak, the fourth longest streak in conference history. The Cavaliers have the longest active scoring streak in the nation, having scored a goal in 44 consecutive games. Both streaks began following a 1-0 overtime loss to the Seminoles in Virginia’s last trip to Tallahassee in 2012.

The Seminoles (9-1, 2-0 ACC) enter the game on a five-game win streak. Florida State opened ACC play with a pair of shutout victories, 2-0 at Boston College and 6-0 over Louisville.

Virginia leads the all-time series 18-3-4, including a 6-2-2 record in Tallahassee. The teams have split the last seven meetings (3-3-1) and the regular season matchup has gone to overtime in each of the past four years. Last year, Virginia topped Florida State 1-0 in overtime at Klöckner Stadium, as Annie Steinlage’s golden goal gave the Cavaliers the win and clinched the program’s first ACC regular season title.

The Cavaliers will have a week off before returning to action on Oct. 5 with a visit to No. 16 Notre Dame. It will mark the Cavaliers’ first visit to South Bend.
