After UCLA win, ‘Cinderella story’ Longhorns softball team rematches No. 1 Oklahoma at College World Series
After a surprising comeback run through the Regional and Super Regional Tournaments, the Longhorn softball program still has no sign of going “horns down” after beating No. 2 UCLA 7-2 at the College World Series on Thursday.
Texas nearly lost out on their World Series bid with a 1-7 loss to Arkansas before beating the Razorbacks back-to-back in Arkansas.
Next up, it’ll have a rematch against the top-ranked Oklahoma program, which has lost just two games this season. But all hope is not lost: in April, the No. 16 Longhorns snapped OU’s 40-game win streak in its first victory against the team since 2014.
The Longhorns will continue its first College World Series appearance in nearly 10 years in the winners' bracket as it takes on OU at 2 p.m. Saturday in Oklahoma City.
