College softball: NCAA will re-air regional, super-regional games on Facebook

Softball fans, rejoice!

If you're needing a softball fix these days -- regional action would've started this week -- the NCAA is re-airing some of the best regional and super-regional games from the past few years on its Facebook page. The regional games will run Thursday through Saturday with the super-regional games will be May 21-24.

It's not live, of course, but with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down all college sports this spring, getting to see some classic games from the past isn't a bad substitute.

Added bonus: commercial breaks will be completely removed.

Included in the schedule is an OU regional game against Wisconsin in 2019 and an OSU super-regional game against Florida State also from last year.
