Last Four In: Notre Dame, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Oregon State
First Four Out: North Carolina, Illinois, San Diego State, Syracuse
Oklahoma remains the only unbeaten team in the country as they sit atop the polls and the latest bracketology. The Sooners average 12.32 runs per game to their opponent’s average of 1.44 runs per game. It is possible for them to finish the regular season undefeated. Arkansas, to some surprise, leads the SEC with a 9-0 conference record. After being swept by Florida and having an 18-11 record, LSU is on the verge of dropping out as one of the 16 National Seeds in the projected tournament. For the SEC as a whole, all 13 teams are currently projected in the field with South Carolina and Mississippi State barely making it in. Duke is making huge strides as one of the nation’s youngest softball programs. They are a solid lock for a National Seed in the latest bracketology.
