Tennessee enjoyed an impressive weekend both in the batter's box and in the circle, outscoring Charleston Southern, Virginia Tech and Lipscomb by a combined score of 26-3 in the Knoxville Regional. UT set a new school record with six home runs in its 12-0 (5) win over the Hokies on May 17. The Lady Vols' 12 runs each of its wins over Charleston Southern and Virginia Tech are the most they have ever scored in an NCAA Tournament game.
Oklahoma defeated Bryant and Texas A&M twice in the Norman Regional, outscoring the Bulldogs and the Aggies by a combined score of 34-18. The Sooners dodged a near upset to Texas A&M on May 17, rallying with three runs in the bottom of the seventh to take a 9-8 win and remain in the winner's bracket.
This year's Super Regional matchup marks the second-straight year and the third time that Tennessee will face the defending national champion in the Supers. In 2006, Tennessee defeated 2005 National Champion Michigan in three games in Knoxville. In 2013, UT topped 2012 champ Alabama in two games in Knoxville.
