NCAA softball tournament 2024: Full regionals bracket, TV schedule for Road to Women’s College World Series

There’s no place like Oklahoma when it comes to softball. The road to Oklahoma City starts now.

The NCAA softball tournament begins May 17 when 64 teams open play in the regionals. Next come the super regionals, where the field is whittled down to eight teams, and then it’s time for the World Series. 

The question for now is who can beat Oklahoma? The Sooners have won three straight titles and don’t show any signs of slowing down, taking down rival Texas for the Big 12 title. But the Longhorns got the nod as the No. 1 overall seed. It’s going to be a tournament of big swings and big upsets, especially with all 13 SEC teams in the field.

The Sporting News has all the information you need to know to catch every game of the 2024 NCAA softball tournament, including broadcast information and the bracket.
