No. 1 Sooners Open WCWS Thursday


• Two-time defending national champion Oklahoma makes its seventh straight and 16th overall appearance at the Women’s College World Series in 2023. Oklahoma is vying to become just the second program to win three straight national titles, looking to join the 1988-90 UCLA Bruins. An OU title would be the program’s fifth in the last seven seasons and the program’s seventh all-time.

• The top-seeded Sooners meet No. 9-seed Stanford Thursday in the WCWS opener, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. CT on ESPN with Kevin Brown and Amanda Scarborough on the call. Courtney Lyle will serve as sideline reporter.

• All games can be heard via 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma or nationwide on The Varsity Network app with Chris Plank and alum DJ Sanchez on the call.

• 2023 marks OU’s 11th trip in the last 12 years to OKC. No other program in the country has made as many trips to the WCWS as OU since the 2011 season.

• OU is on an NCAA record 48-game win streak, recently surpassing 1996-97 Arizona’s 47-game streak.
