OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Georgia upset two-time defending national champion Florida in the Super Regionals, immediately adding a layer of intrigue to the Women’s College World Series.
Georgia is the lowest-seeded team remaining in the field, but the Bulldogs take some talent into their opener against Florida State Thursday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.
Three other games will be played Thursday in the double-elimination tournament that concludes with a best-of-three final.
Michigan will play LSU. The second-seeded Wolverines, second last year, are the highest-seeded team remaining in the tournament.
Oklahoma faces Alabama, which eliminated the Sooners in the Super Regionals last year.
Auburn faces UCLA in a rematch of last year’s four-hour classic that saw the Tigers eliminate UCLA 11-10 in 10 innings.
