How OU and Oklahoma State match up statistically

The Oklahoma Sooners softball was in tears again in 2022. They are 45-1 and the No. 1 team in the nation. They faced challenges along the way and overcame adversity with some late-game feats.

As good as it was last year, this year’s team looks even more complete. They have six players hitting over .400 this season and nine hitting over .300. They have six hitters with 10+ homers this year, led by Jocelyn Alo’s 23, and three players with 50+ RBIs.

And as impressive as the nation’s best offense has been, the pitching staff has been equally impressive, leading the nation in ERA, led by Hope Trautwein’s incredible 0.09 ERA.

Heading into their series with Oklahoma State, the Oklahoma Sooners are looking for their 10th straight regular-season Big 12 title. The Cowgirls are tied with the Sooners at the top of the Big 12 standings and are a well-rounded team. They may not have the numbers Oklahoma has on either side of the ball, but they’re a great field team and they won’t give the Sooners anything easy.

In last year’s Bedlam Series, the Sooners dropped Game 1 of the three-game series 6-4 and were pushed into each of their series wins. The final differential was only +3 in favor of the Sooners. Although Oklahoma looks like the better team on paper, it wouldn’t be surprising to see close games in Bedlam.

Let’s take a look at how the two sides stack up statistically.
