The Florida Gators softball team rolled through their regional to start the NCAA Tournament. But to make the Women's College World Series, they'll have to take down one of the best teams in the country.

UF (46-16, 13-11 in SEC) is the No. 14 seed in the tournament. The Gators face No. 3-seed Virginia Tech (45-8, 21-2 in ACC) in the Blacksburg Super Regional this weekend. The winner of the three-game series advances to Oklahoma City as one of eight teams vying for the national championship.

Virginia Tech won Game 1, 6-0. The game started Friday but was suspended by rain until Saturday morning. The Gators struck back to win Game 2, 7-2, to force a decisive Game 3 on Sunday.

Florida scored at least seven runs in all three of their regional games, putting up 10 in the first inning of the regional final against Wisconsin. The Gators' offense is paced by Skylar Wallace with 50 steals and an NCAA-best 75 runs this season. 

After a surprising loss in the ACC Tournament, the Hokies also dropped a game in their NCAA regional. But after losing to Kentucky on Saturday, Virginia Tech beat them twice on Sunday to advance. Emma Lemley started both games Sunday, with Keely Rochard — 25-3 this season and third in the NCAA with 321 strikeouts — finishing the game.
