IRVING, Texas - The Conference USA softball season came to an end Saturday at the NCAA Division I Softball Regionals.  Three of the four C-USA entrants were eliminated by the host school and top seven national seed with UCF falling to No. 5 Florida, Houston dropping its elimination game to No. 6 Texas and UAB taking its loss against No. 7 Tennessee. Oregon State was a 2-1 winner over Tulsa, eliminating the C-USA champion after a loss in the day's opening game against No. 4 Oklahoma pushed the Golden Hurricane to the losers bracket.

This season was the third straight year that C-USA has earned multiple bids to the NCAA Tournament and the third time in the past five years that the league has earned at least four berths.
