Omaha, Neb. — Florida State head coach Link Jarrett will have his toughest assignment of the year on Sunday: saving the 2024 season following a heartbreaking loss to Tennessee.

The Seminoles led by as many as five runs on the Volunteers before a ferocious comeback that featured plenty of errors and questionable calls from the umpires.

If there's a positive from Friday's opener for Florida State, it's that the Seminoles' confidence may be boosted after beating Virginia in a recent ACC Tournament game.

The Cavaliers also suffered a heartbreaking loss to North Carolina, as a ninth-inning comeback stole a victory from starter Evan Blanco, who put up a fantastic performance with only two earned runs and four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings for his sixth quality start of the season.

Head coach Brian O’Connor will now turn to Jay Woolfolk and/or Joe Savino to save the Cavaliers' season.

The Hoos played Florida State just once this season, a knockout loss in the ACC Tournament. Savino was the starter for that game, as the Seminoles tagged the Elon transfer for four earned over 4 2/3 innings.

The most important pieces from the Virginia bullpen were called on against North Carolina, as Chase Hungate and Aidan Teel gave up a combined five earned runs to the Florida State sticks.

Despite the heavy usage, O'Connor hopes the extra rest afforded to teams in the College World Series will help the Cavaliers come Sunday.

"In Omaha, it's so different because you don't play [the day after your game]," O'Connor said. "Guys get a chance to get rejuvenated and things like that. It's going to be important — whoever we play on Sunday — it's going to be important that we get off to a good start."

Carson Dorsey gets the nod for Florida State, making the matchup project as a near pick'em. Dorsey also pitched in the ACC Tournament against Virginia, giving up four earned runs without recording an out.

Betting Picks & Prediction

The current total for Joe Savino and Dorsey would've projected at 13.8, but Woolfolk pitching for the Cavaliers bumps it to 14.3.

After a brutal Saturday of weather, the wind will shift directions slightly for Sunday, blowing at 15mph from right to left field. Any warning track shots out to left field could produce crooked numbers on the board.

Pick: Over 12.5 (-115)
