This Saturday, Eugene will be the site of a NCAA softball Super Regional, where the #3 seeded Oregon Ducks will face the #14 Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The Ducks are coming off a successful regional showing in which they hosted BYU, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Oregon went 3-0 in their first postseason appearance of 2013 to achieve their fourth straight regional series victory. Now as the Pac-12 champions get ready to host the Huskers, their path to the Women’s College World Series becomes more rigorous.
While Oregon boasts top pitching and a top seed, the Huskers bring accolades of their own. This season, Nebraska has beat four top-25 teams, including No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 9 Michigan and No. 23 Florida State. It’s worth mentioning Oregon lost to Oklahoma 0-12 at the beginning of their season in Tempe, Arizona. The Nebraska squad recently put three players on the Midwest All-Region team, including pitcher of the year Tatum Edwards. The team made the Eugene Super Regional after beating Northern Iowa and No. 13 Stanford (twice).no comments no comments
