5/11 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

Washington College Softball

Last Six In: McNeese State, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Kansas, UAB, Mercer

First Six Out: Houston, Florida International, Northwestern, Stanford, Texas Tech, Fresno State

Just hours away from the selection and 32 teams already in the NCAA Tournament with automatic bids, there are not many changes to this bracket. The big winner on Sunday was Northwestern State. Their dominating win over McNeese State puts the Cowgirls right on the bubble. We still project McNeese State to join Northwestern State in the tournament, but that spot could just as easily go to a team like Houston or Florida International. The bubble is growing instead of shrinking and quite a few teams will be sweating it out.
