Alabama is expected to win the regular season and Florida to become the second program in SEC softball history to host a conference and win. However, Alabama and Florida’s history as conference dominant forces looks set to continue into the 2022 season.

After a historically dominant regular season last year, the top Sooners finishers head to the 2021 College World Series as favorites to claim their third WCWS title since 2016.
In early February, the 2022 college softball season kicks off in full force, kicking off a five-month routine culminating in an NCAA champion at the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City in June.
It’s never too early to predict regular college softball season and tournament champions.

The season continues with numerous NCAA Women’s softball conference tournaments and championship series, culminating in the 2022 NCAA Division I Softball Championship and the 2022 Women’s Collegiate World Series.
