However, they are the first to realize a strong finish is necessary for that to happen.
Well, FSU made all the right moves over the weekend at Dick Howser Stadium against struggling Duke.
The Seminoles completed a three-game sweep of Duke with a 6-3 victory on Sunday in what could be their final home game of the season.
The Seminoles close the regular season with a three-game series beginning Thursday at Wake Forest, then head to Salem, Va., and the ACC tournament.
"This was a big lift for this ballclub, all the way around," FSU coach Mike Martin said.
"A lot of questions have to be answered (regarding an NCAA host). There is not anybody in this league you can walk out there and say, 'We are going to win.' "
FSU's sweep of Duke at Dick Howser Stadium moved the Seminoles (34-19, 13-8) from fifth to tied for third in the ACC standings and strengthens their bid to host an NCAA regional.
Georgia Tech, meanwhile, won its 13th straight by beating Clemson 8-4 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep. The Yellow Jackets (34-17, 15-5) have the same winning percentage as Virginia (40-11, 18-6), which completed its ACC schedule with a sweep of Wake Forest.
