Oklahoma softball is one win away from completing one of the greatest seasons in NCAA history.
The Sooners extended their NCAA record win streak to 52 games with a 5-0 victory over Florida State in Game 1 of the best-of-three Women's College World Series championship series, putting them one win away from a third straight NCAA title.
Only UCLA (1988-90) has accomplished a three-peat since the NCAA held its first softball tournament in 1982. Oklahoma will go for the clinch in Game 2 on Thursday in Oklahoma City (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).
Florida State managed to keep the Oklahoma run-scoring machine in check, for a while.
All-ACC starter Mack Leonard began the game, which had its start interrupted by multiple weather delays, by holding the Sooners scoreless for three innings, but the dam broke in the fourth, an inning in which OU is now outscoring opponents 76-3.
