The UCLA Bruins lead the all-time series with the Texas Longhorns, 12-6, but the two programs have split the last six head-to-head meetings. UCLA battled against Texas earlier this season at the St. Pete/Clearwater Elite Invitational on Feb. 19, with the Bruins picking up a 2-1 victory.
Texas (43-19-1, 12-6 Big 12) won the 2022 NCAA Fayetteville Super Regional to earn its sixth all-time Women’s College World Series berth and first since 2013. Prior to 2022, the Longhorns had never advanced to the Women’s College World Series by winning a road super regional.
Texas owns a 7-10 all-time record in the showcase event and is making its first-ever trip to OKC as an unseeded team.
The No. 5 seed UCLA (48-8, 19-5 Pac-12) is confident about its chances entering what will be its NCAA-record 31st Women’s College World Series appearance.
The Bruins beat Duke in two games in the best-of-three series to improve its all-time Super Regional record to 24-7 and secure a place to the World Series.
