NCAA Softball Tournament bracket: Schedule, TV channels, streaming, scores for Road to WCWS

The 2024 NCAA Softball Tournament field has been set.

Although Oklahoma won the Big 12 Tournament championship and has won three consecutive national championships, it was rival Texas who earned the No. 1 overall spot on Sunday. Patty Gasso's OU team was right behind, at No. 2.

The nod was the Longhorns' first ever, despite falling to Oklahoma in the conference championship game. Texas went 2-2 against the Sooners during the regular season. Meanwhile, Oklahoma and Texas' future conference, the SEC, placed all 13 of its teams in the postseason, with eight teams placed in the top 16 and three in the top eight.

Speaking of conference realignment, several teams from the soon-to-be-defunct Pac-12 will be on the Road to the Women's College World Series, including Arizona, Utah, Cal, Stanford, Washington, Oregon and UCLA. They account for 24 of 41 all time Division I NCAA softball championships, not including UCLA's vacated 1995 title. This will be the final tournament in which they recognize the Pac-12 before departing for the likes of the ACC, Big 12 and Big Ten.

Here's the full softball postseason bracket, including TV channels and times for each game:
