When, where, how to watch No. 1 Oklahoma softball take on Morgan State in NCAA Regional

·2 min read

No. 1 Oklahoma (45-2, 16-1) is rested and ready to go off of its Big 12 tournament title last weekend as it officially begins an NCAA Tournament run on Friday night in the Norman Regional against Morgan State (24-15, 14-5).

The Sooners have been a nearly unstoppable force all season and were awarded the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament for their efforts. Now they get the chance to live up to that ranking as they begin their quest for the Women’s College World Series.

The Bears won the MEAC’s regular-season title as well the conference tournament to gain their spot in the Norman Regional as an automatic qualifier. This will be their first game against major conference competition all season as they look to pull off what would be an all-time, historic stunner should they topple mighty Oklahoma in what is the program’s first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

This not only marks the first game for the Sooners in their hopeful title run, but it will also be their first game played in front of 100% capacity at Marita Hynes Field. The University of Oklahoma has elected to allow a full crowd moving forward.

This game will be the first meeting between Oklahoma and Morgan State, as the Sooners look to get off on the right foot toward punching their ticket to an 11th straight appearance in the Super Regionals. The Bears are coached by Larry Hineline, who is in his seventh year with the program.
