The second game of the day at the Charlottesville Regional will feature No. 2 seed Oklahoma against No. 3 seed Appalachian State. This will be the first meeting between the two schools. The Sooners enter with a record of 38-22 after their typically strong season in the Big 12 which ended with a loss in the conference tournament title game. Oklahoma will be UVA's strongest competition in the regional, and they have one of the better pitching staffs in Division 1 with a .258 opponents' batting average.
While Oklahoma is one of the blue bloods and a threat to make it to Omaha every year, this is Appalachian State's first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 1986. The game is set to start 50 minutes after the conclusion of the first game between Virginia and Army, with an estimated start time between 2 and 2:30 p.m. ET. The games were moved up to from Friday night to Friday afternoon to avoid heavy storms which were in the forecast for the Charlottesville area.
The game will not be available on television and will not be streamed online.
Game Date/Time: Friday, 50 minutes after conclusion of UVA vs. Army -- estimated for 2-2:30 p.m. ET
