The University of Minnesota Gopher Softball team opened the NCAA Tournament with a 3-0 win over the North Dakota State University Bison in Minneapolis Friday night.

Saturday the Gophers will play the University of Georgia Bulldogs at 3 p.m. at Jane Sage Cowles Stadium. 

The weather looks like it may cause some delays both today and Sunday, with rain expected both days. 

If the Gophers advance they would host a Super Regional next week.

The Softball College World Series is in Oklahoma City starting on May 30th.
