While Clemson tries to salvage a victory from its series against No. 3 South Carolina, No. 2 Florida State and No. 19 Miami will square off at Tallahassee, both seeking a series victory to open the ACC season.

The Seminoles (7-1), who fell to the Hurricanes (5-4) on Friday, bounced back with a 10-2 victory on Sunday to even the series.

Saturday was a successful day for most ACC teams.

Maryland (6-2) swept a doubleheader against UMass-Amherst, winning 4-0 and 10-1. Jake Stinnett pitched a no-hitter in the opener - the Terps' first no-hitter since 2008.

Wake Forest also won a pair of games, as the Deacons (7-4) edged Stony Brook 4-3 and St. Louis 3-2. Notre Dame (4-6) split a pair, losing to Michigan 4-2 and beating Youngstown State 6-3 at Cary, N.C.

Duke (6-4) was a 5-2 winner over Marshall; Boston College (6-3) topped Villanova 7-6; Virginia (7-2) won its series opener over Monmouth 6-3; North Carolina (6-3) was a 5-1 winner over North Florida; Georgia Tech (6-4) defeated Bowling Green 8-3; and Virginia Tech (5-2) beat UMass-Lowell 4-3.

NC State (8-2) had its eight-game winning streak snapped by UCLA, 2-0. Wolfpack ace Carlos Rodon took his second low-scoring shutout loss of the season.

Pittsburgh (4-4) fell to East Carolina 4-2 in the Keith LeClaire Classic at Greenville, N.C.

In games of national relevance, Cal State-Fullerton won its second straight over Oregon, 3-2; Louisiana-Lafayette beat Alabama for the second straight day, 6-0, and pushed its winning streak to 10 games; Indiana swept a doubleheader from Louisville; and Vanderbilt bounced back from a pair of midweek losses and won its first two games against Stanford, 4-1 and 5-1.
