The Oklahoma Sooners finished the season on a 27-game winning streak. Sporting a 47-7 overall record, the committee ranked OU as the No. 3 National Seed and Norman will now serve as a Regional Host beginning Friday. As four teams descend on Norman for the three day event, each hopes to move on to Super Regional play against the Lafayette Regional winner.

The Sooners and the Wichita State Shockers have met a total of 52 times while the crimson and cream owns a 45-7 overall record against their Friday opponent. Currently, on a 32-game win streak against WSU, The streak includes an earlier meeting in which Oklahoma posted a 10-1 victory in April. Paige Parker and the rest of the crew hope to make it 33 consecutive wins.

Potentially facing Tulsa on Saturday, the two are familiar with one another as well. Squaring off on May 4th, OU downed the Golden Hurricane in a 4-1 bout leaving one unfamiliar foe on the board in Ole Miss.

The Ole Miss Rebels hail from a top tier softball conference. Although the Rebels stare at a losing 11-13 record in conference play, they finished the season 39-20 overall. Sure, Oklahoma holds a 3-0 margin over Ole Miss but the two have not met since the 2000 season.

Expect the excitement to run high as the games begin!
