Big 12 Softball Tournament takes place this week for the 2024 season.

The 10-team league has three of the best teams in the country in 2024. Those teams include Texas, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State. All three have been among the Top-5 of national polls throughout the season.

Now, attention turns to the single-elimination Big 12 Tournament, which will be held in Oklahoma City’s USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium.

The winner of the Big 12 Tournament will earn an automatic bid to the 2024 NCAA Tournament.

This will be BYU’s first appearance in a Big 12 Softball Tournament. The Cougars open their Big 12 Tournament run against No. 3-seed Oklahoma State.

BYU finished the season with a 30-22 record overall and 11-16 in Big 12 play. Gordon Eakin’s squad enters the tournament winners of eight of their last eleven games to close out the regular season.
