Live scores and updates from WCWS

OKLAHOMA CITY – Texas softball coach Mike White was at a loss for words after his team dropped Game 1 of a best-of-three series 8-3 to Oklahoma in the Women’s College World Series on Wednesday. “It’s pretty simple,” White said. “It’s fight or go home.”

Can Texas (55-9) stave off elimination on Thursday and force a third and decisive game Friday against a Sooner team trying to win an unprecedented fourth straight national title?

Watch live with Thomas Jones, Kirk Buhls and the American Statesman.

Central 2: Texas 1, Oklahoma 0

The Texans are only 1-for-6 with runners in this game, but Henry has really provided the first hit for the Horns in the last three games. That’s been missing since the Horns won their first two games easily. – Kirk Buhls

Central 2: Texas 1, Oklahoma 0

The Longhorns have the No. 1 lead in the championship series. Texas catcher Reese Atwood did not hit a basehit, but did score a run. She reaches base on a walk and is credited with her first steal of the season, if the call stands. The 6-foot-1 then showed her wheels and scored on Kayden Henry’s RBI single to right field. Thomas Jones

Start 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Texas survives the first half unscathed, unlike last night, turning its fourth doubleheader into WCWS form here. OU leads all teams here with a .309 batting average in the WCWS. The Horns are hitting just .255 after leading the nation in batting average at .372. –– Kirk Buhls

End 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Oklahoma’s Jayda Coleman opens the bottom of the first inning with a sharp single, but then Texas’ pitching shows off his glove. Third baseman Mia Scott almost started a double play, but settled for one out, then shortstop Vivi Martinez and second baseman Alyssa Washington turned a double play to end the win -Thomas Jones

Center 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Texas picks up where it left off in game one. She had just two hits in six at bats with runners in scoring position in that loss and squandered a Bella Dayton walk with an easy double play. – Kirk Buhls

Center 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Oklahoma starter Carly Kenney opens the game with a walk to Bella Dayton, but Sooner second baseman Avery Hodge makes a great play to convert a double play. -Thomas Jones

It’s not often that Texas loses twice in a row

Texas is hungry to keep its season and championship hopes alive tonight. The Horns lost 8-3 to OU last night and have not lost two games in a row to the same opponent all season. Their only losing streak came in two games against Oklahoma State and OU in different series. – Kirk Buhls

Texas vs. OU attracts viewers

The first game between Texas and Oklahoma, broadcast on ESPN, drew the best audience for a WCWS game ever with 1.9 million viewers, according to ESPN. This was the WCWS’s best crowd since 2021 and the second-best crowd since 2015. It was also the second-most televised softball game ever on ESPN+. -Thomas Jones

Devon Park already looks like an OU pool, but Texas is represented. AD Chris Del Conte, Chief Trustee Kevin Eltiff and Chancellor JP Milliken watch from the front row behind the Horn dugout. – Kirk Buhls

It’s no surprise that Mike White went with young right-hander Mack Morgan. She has been impressive and strong this postseason, hitting 90% of her shots, which could theoretically help her keep OU’s hits on the park. – Kirk Buhls

Mack Morgan begins his journey to Texas

White affectionately calls young Mack Morgan the “Bulldog” of the circuit, and he turns to his young pitcher to keep the Longhorns’ season alive. Morgan has yet to allow a run in the WCWS in two appearances, giving up just two hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings pitched. That stretch includes 1.2 innings pitched in Wednesday’s loss to the Sooners. Oklahoma will face Carly Kenney, a graduate student in her first season with the Sooners. She pitched just a third of an inning in the WCWS and this will be her sixth start of the season. Part of a curveball from OU coach Patty Gasso. -Thomas Jones
