Will Arizona be hosting a softball Regional next weekend?

Jason Bartel

The Arizona Wildcats finished off the regular season on Saturday with a run-rule walk-off at Hillenbrand Stadium.

But will it be the last game at the stadium this year?

We find out Sunday night during the NCAA Softball Selection Show:







32 teams have already earned automatic bids to the softball postseason. Oregon earned the Pac-12's nod thanks to winning the regular season championship.

Arizona finished fifth in the league, checking in with a 13-11 conference record. The Wildcats are 36-19 overall, but were only 21st in the RPI heading into the final weekend.

College Sports Madness has a softball bracket projection, and Arizona is listed as the 2-seed in a Knoxville Regional, having to face Tennessee, North Carolina and Wichita State.

Looking at the projection, it looks like it would come down to Arizona and Fresno State being the final West Coast Regional site. Fresno has an overall record of 41-10-1, and a Mountain West record of 22-1. However, that one conference loss came on Saturday at home to UNLV. The only other time the Bulldogs lost at home this year was to Washington on March 12th.

So maybe that Saturday loss gives Arizona a sliver of hope at hosting.

We'll find out Sunday night.
