#3 Florida State (14-0-3, 9-0-2) at #1 Virginia (17-0, 11-0), Sunday, 2 pm ET

Virginia comes in still undefeated and having shut out six of its last seven opponents, including five straight blank sheets. The Cavs achieved an impressive feat last weekend when they won at North Carolina, as they became the first team to ever win three years in a row at UNC. With its 17th straight win Thursday against Miami, Virginia set a school record for consecutive victories. Four different Cavs scored in the team's 4-0 shutout of the Hurricanes.

Florida State comes in on a five-game winning streak, after beating Virginia Tech Thursday 2-1. With the win, the Seminoles now have a 17-game unbeaten streak, as they have yet to lose this year. The 'Noles were able to extend the streak thanks to two goals from Dagny Brynjasdottir. They were the junior's eighth and ninth goals on the season and also her fifth game-winner.
