OU beat James Madison 6-3 in a noon Sunday contest to force an “if-necessary” game in the double-elimination format. After a long rain delay later Sunday, Florida State defeated Alabama 2-0 to force another win-or-go-home contest.
Both of those games originally were scheduled to be played on Sunday night, but the NCAA announced around 8 p.m. that both deciding games for the WCWS would be shifted to Monday, which would also bump the WCWS to a Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday format with times to be determined.
Now, Oklahoma and James Madison will play at 3 p.m. Monday on ESPN, with the Alabama-Florida State game to follow. Those winners will play in the best-of-3 championship series.
