No. 13 Texas softball now faces elimination after a first-game loss to No. 4 Tennessee in the Knoxville Super Regional.
The Lady Vols used a four-run second inning to beat the Longhorns 5-2, putting them just one game away from the Women’s College World Series.

Texas’ comeback attempt was aborted despite the tying run coming in the sixth inning.
Mike White’s team is in a familiar situation with their backs against the wall. The Longhorns dropped the first game of a Super Regional against Arkansas last season before going all the way to the National title series.
Game two of the Knoxville Super Regional takes place on Saturday at 2 p.m. CT. Texas hopes to force a winner-take-all game three on Sunday.
