In an exciting championship game, the No. 1 seed Texas Longhorns and No. 2 seed Oklahoma Sooners bring the Red River Rivalry to Oklahoma City, where they will face each other in the Women’s College World Series Championship Finals.

Game one kicks off on Wednesday, June 5 at 8pm and will be the first of a potential three-game series between the bitter rivals. The games will be played at the same time Wednesday through Friday and will all be broadcast on ESPN’s main channel

The Sooners, despite the lower seed, enter the series as the favorites with odds of -140 to take home the crown. Texas is on a +110 line.

The Longhorns and Sooners meet for the fifth time this season on Wednesday, with the series tied at 2-2. Texas will be looking for revenge from two years ago, when the Sooners defeated Texas in the 2022 championship final, 2-0. Texas managed to win its only complete series of the year, but Oklahoma last defeated Texas in the Big 12 championship game.

Texas enters Wednesday’s game on a defensive hot streak, having not allowed a run in 21 innings of WCWS softball. The pitching duo of Mac Morgan and Teagan Kavan were among the elite and will need to continue their success to secure a championship.

The Sooners will throw out Kelly Maxwell for the majority of the innings in the series, but the high-powered offense will give the Longhorns most of the offense. The Sooners have scored 19 runs in the four WCWS games and feature some of the best hitters in the country, including Tiare Jennings, Ella Parker and the walkoff hero of their last game, Jayda Coleman.
