The Oklahoma Sooners (33-1, 6-0) and Oklahoma State Cowgirls (32-2, 3-0) are the nation’s No. 1 and No. 2 teams respectively, according to the latest ESPN Softball Top 25 poll, and are set on a collision course for a three-game series on the first weekend of May, just ahead of the Big 12 tournament.
The Texas Longhorns (30-8-1, 3-3) are coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of Oklahoma but dropped just two spots in this week’s rankings to No. 10.
