USC softball to host NCAA regional

USC softball to host NCAA regional

The Huskers were not among the teams in 64-team field, which was announced Sunday night. The other game is host Alabama (33-18), No. 12-seeded overall, against Middle Tennessee (39-20).

Mississippi State will face North Dakota State in Friday's first game at 6 p.m. Tucson time and that game will be followed by UA and St. Francis at 8:30.

An early exit in the Big Ten tournament made things uncertain, but Ohio State got what they wanted with a selection to the NCAA softball tournament.

The Tuscaloosa Regional is paired with the Seattle Regional hosted by No. 5 seed Washington (44-8). The victor of the two regionals will face off in a best-of-three super regional, with Washington hosting if it wins its regional. The Gators went on to win the conference title and were seeded second in the NCAA Tournament. OR and Florida are the top two seeds.

The league landed seven bids out of its nine teams, and five of those squads are set to host regionals. Those best-of-three tourneys will each send a team to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
