UCLA, Washington, Florida State, Florida, Arizona, Minnesota and Alabama round out the top-8 national seeds.
Florida, which won the SEC tournament title on Saturday with a 2-1 win over Alabama, seemingly got the most generous seeding of the SEC teams.
The victor of OU's regional will face the victor of No. 16 seed Northwestern's regional.
Still, it's yet another NCAA tournament appearance and yet another top-16 seed for Patrick Murphy and Alabama.
BATON ROUGE- It was announced today that the LSU softball team has been selected as the No. 10 overall seed for the 2019 NCAA Softball Championships. Louisiana and SEMO will open the regional on Friday at 3:30 p.m. CT, with Ole Miss taking on Chattanooga later that night at 6 p.m. CT.
The top-ranked Sooners (49-2) bring a 39-game winning streak into the tournament, which is a Division I single-season record and eight wins shy of the 47 consecutive games Arizona won across the 1996 and 1997 seasons. Of the Rebels' 37 wins, 12 came against ranked teams.
On Sunday, the softball team celebrated at the home of head coach Lonni Alameda. The initial games will be broadcasted LIVE on ESPN3 before later games are designated to its respective ESPN platforms. The winners of that double elimination bracket then advance to the Super Regionals for a Best of Three series. Also competing in the Lexington Regional is Toledo, Illinois and Virginia Tech. They have qualified for one Super Regional in program history after hosting a regional in the 2014 season. The Noles have not faced anyone from their regional bracket this season with the regional victor taking on the victor from the Stillwater Regional headed up by No. 13 national seed Oklahoma State.
