Big 12 Softball Championship TicketsThe 2020 Big 12 Softball Championship will feature the league’s best teams with the winner earning the Big 12’s automatic berth in the NCAA Championship. If the same format that was intended in 2019 before the conclusion of that event was rained out is utilized again in 2020, six of its seven teams will take part. They’ll be divided into two groups of three schools apiece with the first-place finishers from each meeting in the championship game. It’s likely that several of these teams will be right in the mix for the national championship, as well. In the final USA Today/NFCA Top 25 Coaches Poll of the 2019 campaign, three of them were ranked in the top 11: Oklahoma (No. 2), Oklahoma State (No. 6) and Texas (No. 11). OU and OSU advanced to the Women's College World Series. To see the Big 12’s best play for a league championship, get your Big 12 Softball Championship tickets at StubHub.
