The NCAA announced the field of 64 for the 2012 Women's College World Series on Sunday night, awarding the Texas Longhorns softball team with a No. 6 overall seed.

The Longhorns (42-10) will host the Austin Regional from Friday, May 18th to Sunday, May 20th. Texas will take on Auburn (33-21), Houston (34-22) and Northwestern (27-27). Among the three other teams in the region, the Longhorns have only faced Houston, beating the Cougars in five innings, 15-4 in late March.

The winner of the Austin Regional will play the champion of the Eugene regional featuring Oregon (39-15), Portland State (27-23), Mississippi St. (33-22) and BYU (43-13).

Texas received an at-large bid after finishing tied for third in the Big 12 with a 16-8 conference record and a 42-10 overall record. The Longhorns have been dominant at home with a 25-3 record and figure to be the favorite to advance out of the regional round.
