    The 2017 NCAA softball tournament began with 64 teams. After one weekend of action, it's now down to 16.
    Those 16 will play in super regionals this weekend for eight spots in the Women's College World Series.

    Five Pac-12 and eight SEC teams remain alive after last weekend's regional round.

    Each super regional is a best-of-three format, and begins either Thursday or Friday. All start dates and channels below are according to NCAA.com's softball


    Super regionals matchups are set:

    NCAA softball super regional pits Pac-12 against SEC
    http://www.oregonlive.com/ducks/ind...ball_super_regional_p.html#incart_river_index

    Few sports have been dominated by one conference the way the Pac-12 held a grip over softball for its first 30 years in the NCAA. Ever since UCLA won the first NCAA softball national title in 1982, 24 of the first 30 national titles were claimed by Pac-12 schools, and all but two of the WCWS finals in that span featured at least one Pac-12 team.

    Yet the conference's power has waned.

    Not only has a Pac-12 team failed to win an NCAA title the past five seasons, the conference hasn't produced the WCWS runner-up, either. Meanwhile, SEC schools have won three titles in that span.

    This season, 21 of the 64 teams in the NCAA tournament came from either the Pac-12 or SEC, including all 13 from the SEC, the first time all of a conference's members made it since the Pac-10 in 2007. And of the 16 teams remaining, all but three are Pac-12 or SEC members.

    Florida and Alabama begin their series Thursday at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN.
    UCLA vs. Mississippi begin their series starting at 6 p.m. PT Thursday on ESPN
    all others begin their series on Friday

    GDF, a lot of that has to do with PAC kids coming to play in the SEC. I haven't check rosters in the past couple of years but a few years back, SEC rosters were loaded with softball recruits from out west.

    Just dug. I meant to look at 16-17 yr rosters but realized I had 2016 ones. Here' a sniper.

    Florida had 7 from California. Almost half the roster.
    Tennessee had 5 from California
    Auburn had 4
    Bama just had 2

    UCLA up 1-0 over Ole Miss. Take notes baseball pitchers. UCLA softball pitcher just hit a moonshot. Boy pitchers are such pussies.

    I'll trade you three great PAC softball players for one excellent SEC defensive lineman
