Women’s College World Series finals 2022: TV schedule, scores for Oklahoma vs. Texas in NCAA softball championship

It all comes down to this.

The Women’s College World Series finals is finally upon us.

The Red River Rivalry and the Women’s College World Series will collide in Oklahoma City.

It’s a Big 12 affair in nature, featuring two of the conference’s softball powerhouses; No. 1 overall seed Oklahoma and Texas.

The Sooners are shepherded by their senior slugger, Jocelyn Alo. Alo is the NCAA’s all-time leader in home runs; she hit a moonshot of a grand slam in Oklahoma’s 15-0 demolition of No. 5 UCLA, helping the Sooners punch their ticket to the finals.

However, she’ll almost certainly be tested in the final round of the tournament. The Longhorns have a glittering collection of flamethrowers, none more effective than Hailey Dolcini. Dolcini has allowed just 16 earned runs in 47 tournament innings — a minuscule 2.38 ERA.

Texas becomes the 1st unseeded team to reach the championship round of the Women’s College World Series.

This the third time two teams from the same conference will battle for the softball national title.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Women’s College World Series finals, including the schedule of the games and broadcast information.

Who is in the Women’s College World Series finals?


The Women’s College World Series finals features a Big 12 matchup like no other. No. 1 overall seed Oklahoma has only been bested three times in their 60 game-season. One of those defeats came at the hands of their Women’s College World Series counterpart Texas.

The Longhorns have been one of the hottest teams in the country over the past few weeks. After having a decent, but unspectacular regular season, Texas has rolled through the competition in the NCAA tournament, winning ten of their 12 games to reach the Women’s College World Series finals. The Longhorns have already beaten Oklahoma once before, back on April 16. They’ve bested another four top-16 sides in their tournament run, including No. 7 Oklahoma State twice on Monday to reach the WCWS final, so they should be more than ready for the challenge.

As was the case in earlier rounds, all the softball action from the Women’s College World Series finals will be shown on ESPN’s networks. ESPN will broadcast the first and third games of the series (if necessary), while the broadcast will move to ESPN2 for Game 2.

Viewers can also watch all the action unfold on ESPN+ or fuboTV, which offers a free seven-day trial.
