2019 College softball opening weekend: Three ranked teams to watch on CBS Sports Digital

Kentucky Athletics

Just as baseball pitchers and catcher get ready to report, college softball season is upon us. SportsLive will have four games from Friday to Saturday, all featuring top-25 programs. 

The action begins early on Friday at 2 p.m., as No. 8 Tennessee takes on Coastal Carolina. At 4:30 p.m. ET, No. 13 Kentucky takes on Houston. Then, at 7 p.m. ET, No. 22 Oklahoma will get its own swing at Houston. The action concludes on Saturday, when Kentucky plays Houston again.

It's an utterly jam-packed day of softball, especially if you play for or follow Houston. But that's just more for the fans.

Florida State is looking to defend its College World Series championship last year, but it has tough competition. Any one of the teams playing this weekend could give the Seminoles a run for their money.
