PROVO, Utah – Riding an upset of No. 15 Arizona, BYU softball gears up for four games in Oklahoma this Friday and Saturday, including two against the No. 13/14 Sooners.

The Cougars (12-8) are fresh off of a 3-2 weekend at the Wildcat Invitational where they defeated No. 15 Arizona. The game was BYU’s first win over a top-15 team on the road since 2010 against No. 7 Texas in the NCAA Regional.

Junior pitcher McKenna Bull leads the team from the circle after being named the West Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week for her third-straight time. In the nation, she is first in total strikeouts with 125. She also moved into third place all-time at BYU in shutouts with 14 after recording her third of the season against UTEP.
