NCAA softball tournament 2017: Bracket, schedule, and scores

The NCAA softball tournament super regionals begin on Thursday, starting with 16 teams and whittling that down to eight teams by Sunday night. Teams play a best-of-three series this round before returning to double-elimination in the Women’s College World Series (the final two teams then play a best-of-three series for the title).

There were no upsets in the regional round so the top 16 seeded teams are all playing this weekend, leaving the Minnesota Golden Gophers, perhaps the most dominating team this season, back home.

The No. 1 overall seed Florida Gators open super regional play against the No. 16 Alabama Crimson Tide at 7 p.m. ET Thursday night before No. 5 UCLA and No. 12 Ole Miss open their series. The rest of the round gets underway on Friday.

Here are the super regional matchups and complete schedule. The full 64-team bracket can be found here.
