Sooners earn top seed in NCAA softball tourney

Sooners earn top seed in NCAA softball tourney”

Each regional is a four-team, double-elimination tournament. The Tigers finished the regular season in a three-way tie for second place in the SEC.

This will be Oklahoma's ninth consecutive year as a regional host site, and the 13th consecutive year that the Sooners have earned one of the 16 national seeds. The two teams last met in 2012 in the Women's College World Series, with the Tide winning 2-1. The Rebels hosted their first ever regional in 2017, hot off of the program's only SEC Tournament Championship, claiming three straight games to advance to a Super Regional.

After the first six top seeds were unveiled, the Gophers erupted into cheers after learning that they would be the No. 7 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Tide have the most wins of any team in the tournament.

This is the second time Auburn has travelled to Tucson, Arizona for the NCAA Tournament.

"We're excited", said head coach Beth Torina.

The Noles hosting the regional is favorable. The initial games will be broadcasted LIVE on ESPN3 before later games are designated to its respective ESPN platforms.

The victor of the Norman Regional will advance to the Super Regionals against the victor of the Evanston Regional, which is being hosted by Northwestern. The Wildcats are a No 14 seed and will open the tourney following the Illinois-Virginia Tech contest in the opener at noon.

State is making its 15th NCAA Tournament appearances in its 23rd season as a member of the Southeastern Conference and holds a 14-28 overall record in the postseason. The Noles have not faced anyone from their regional bracket this season with the regional victor taking on the victor from the Stillwater Regional headed up by No. 13 national seed Oklahoma State.
