The 2022 NCAA softball tournament has been pared down from a field of 64 teams to just nine, and the final spot in the 2022 Women’s College World Series will be determined Sunday.

Seven teams already have won super regionals to advance to the WCWS, which is set to run June 2-10 in Oklahoma City.

The Oregon State Beavers are in the WCWS field after sweeping Stanford in their super regional with a 3-1 win on Friday night and a 2-0 win Saturday.

Joining the Beavers in Oklahoma City will be: No. 1 national seed Oklahoma, No. 5 UCLA, No. 7 Oklahoma State, No. 14 Florida, Arizona and Texas.

No. 8 Arizona State and No. 9 Northwestern will play Game 3 of their best-of-three super regional at 6:30 p.m. PT Sunday (TV on ESPNU) to determine which team will nab the final spot in the Women’s College World Series. Each of the first two games of the Sun Devils-Wildcats series went to extra innings.

Three Pac-12 teams are in the WCWS field, and the Sun Devils could give the conference a fourth team with a win Sunday. The Big 12 also has three teams headed to Oklahoma City, while the Southeastern Conference has one.

So far, four teams — Arizona, Oregon State, Texas and Florida — have won best-of-three super regionals on the road to earn their WCWS spots.
