Michigan is now the top seed remaining in the NCAA Softball Tournament.
No. 3 Oklahoma swept No. 14 UL-Lafayette, No. 6 Alabama is up 1-0 on No. 11 Washington, No. 7 JMU is up on No. 10 LSU, and No. 8 Florida State is up on Utah. The other three series (5 Oregon-12 UCLA, 4 Auburn-Arizona, 2 Michigan-15 Missouri) all start today. Only one upset so far, but it's an enormous one.
