The Florida Gators bounced back from their grueling loss to the Arizona St. Sun Devils with a 5-2 victory over the California Golden Bears, setting them up for a Sunday duel against the No. 2 seed Alabama Crimson Tide. If Bama wins they'll advance to the championship series and the 2011 Women's College World Series will be down to a lone SEC team, while the Tide could survive a Florida victory.
Sunday's second game sees top seed Arizona State welcome the Baylor Bears, who eliminated Big 12 rival Mizzou 1-0 in an extra-innings affair late Sunday night that was scoreless for like its first 20 hours or so. Same story as Bama-Florida in that one: if the Sun Devils win they'll be off to the title round, while an upset would delay the decision until late Sunday night.

Alabama vs. Florida, 1, ESPN
Arizona State vs. Baylor, 3:30, ESPN
Game 13, if Alabama loses: 7, ESPN2
