2/24 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

Michigan College Softball

Last Four In: Texas, Illinois, USC-Upstate, Florida International

First Four Out: Iowa State, South Carolina, Wisconsin, North Carolina

As a whole, both the ACC and Big Ten are off to tough starts. Of course this early in the season the strengths of schedule are all over the place, but each conference has just five teams with winning records. And it is in those two conferences where most of the movement in this week’s bracket has taken place. Georgia Tech and Illinois join the field after strong starts, yet it will be interesting to how those two teams do once conference play roles around.
