4/8 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Four In:  Auburn, Nebraska, North Carolina, Michigan
First Four Out:  South Alabama, Texas Tech, Notre Dame, Minnesota
Another two weeks have passed since the last bracket came out. The ACC and Pac-12 only have six teams projected in the bracket this week, similar to two weeks ago. The SEC still carries the most. Oklahoma has dropped back-to-back conference games to Texas, but this will not affect their seeding – the resume is still strong. Northwestern is starting to make a comeback after a slow start to the season and so is Louisiana from the Sun Belt.
