      Since BYU is at the Stillwater Regional, it will start on Thursday while all of the other Regionals start Friday. The first game of the Stillwater Regional is Arkansas v Tulsa. It has a 5pm CT start and is followed by Oklahoma State v BYU. Both of the games can be seen on ESPN3.

        Stillwater Regional

        Tulsa 5-0 Arkansas

        With a scoreless game heading into the seventh, the Hog's defense fell apart (three errors) and then the Hurricane had four consecutive singles, all part of five runs. Freshman Chenise Delce, the Rookie of the Year in the AAC, threw a five-hit shutout.

        BYU 1-3 Oklahoma State

        The Cowgirls received four walks in the first two innings and three of them scored. Samantha Show pitched a three-hitter for the win.

        Tulsa and Oklahoma State play the first game of three in this Regional tomorrow before two elimination games.
