INDIANAPOLIS -- The University of Oklahoma heads the field of 64 as the No. 1 overall seed for the 2019 NCAA Division I National Championships. The Sooners, riding a NCAA Division I-record 39-game winning streak, will host UMBC, an automatic qualifier from the America East Conference.

Thirty-two conferences were awarded an automatic qualification, while the remaining 32 slots were filled with at-large selections to complete the bracket. The top 16 teams were seeded nationally and will play at campus sites beginning this Thursday.

Interactive Bracket

Team pairings were determined by geographic proximity, with the exception that teams from the same conference were not paired during regional competition.

For the third straight year, all 13 programs from the Southeastern Conference will be making a trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Big Ten Conference placed six teams, while two programs are making their first appearance in the tournament: Detroit Mercy University and Seattle University. 

Since the tournament began in 1982, only 13 schools have been crowned the NCAA Division I softball champion. Eleven of those 13 teams will compete in this year’s bracket.
