The Oklahoma Sooners will venture through the Big 12 one last time in 2024 and now we know the conference part of their schedule.
The Sooners have dominated the Big 12 since it was established in 1996. They’ve won 15 regular season conference titles, including the last 11. They’ve won eight tournament titles.
In 2023, Oklahoma completed the best season in college softball and set the record for consecutive wins at 53 straight and counting.
As Oklahoma looks to add to their trophy, here’s a look at their conference schedule for the 2024 season.

The Sooners swept Texas Tech to the tune of 16-0 in their three-game set in Norman in 2023. Jayda Coleman had a two-homer game in the series.
The Oklahoma Sooners swept their 2023 series with the Bears, outscoring Baylor 13-0. That came after the Bears handed the Sooners an early season loss at the Dave Getterman Classic.
