After being crowned the regular season American Athletic Conference champions, and the subsequent conference tournament being cancelled, USF was awarded the automatic qualifying bid for NCAA tournament. It was announced on Sunday evening that the Bulls will be staying in-state for regionals, as they will head to FSU for the Tallahassee regional for the third time in their last four postseason appearances.

USF (40-17, 17-4 AAC) will face South Carolina (36-17, 9-14 SEC) Friday at noon in the first game of the double elimination regional, joining #4 overall national seed Florida State (51-8, 28-2 ACC) and Bethune-Cookman (26-29, 13-2 MEAC).

The Bulls and Gamecocks faced off earlier this season at the USF-Clearwater Parks and Recreation Invitational Tournament, where South Carolina won 8-1.

USF hasn’t beaten South Carolina in softball since 2014, where the Bulls beat South Carolina twice...at the Tallahassee regional.
