One of the most fun tournaments in college sports is upon us, as the 2023 Women's College World Series field is set after a myriad of thrilling regional and super regional play across the country in the NCAA Softball Tournament.
Defending back-to-back champion Oklahoma is returning to Oklahoma City and will look to extend its NCAA-record 48-game winning streak after defeating Clemson in supers. The greatest dynasty currently in sports must hold off some pretty tough competitors, as No. 4 Tennessee, No. 5 Alabama, No. 9 Stanford, No. 3 Florida State, No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 7 Washington and No. 15 Utah join them in the WCWS.
The Seminoles might be the biggest threat at upsetting Oklahoma. They beat Georgia in supers and have won 21 of their last 22 games, plus they've been in the WCWS Finals twice in the last four tournaments. Still, don't count out the Crimson Tide any time Montana Fouts is in the circle.
The matchups at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium won't disappoint. There's an SEC rivalry matchup between Tennessee and Alabama and a Pac-12 showdown between Washington and Utah, plus plenty of more action to look forward to. Anyone can truly walk away from the double-elimination tournament as a champ.
Here's how the rest of this year's WCWS schedule is shaping up.
