Oklahoma defeated Florida State 5-1 to lock up the national title in Game 3 of the championship series on Thursday.

The Sooners survived the tournament’s elimination bracket to advance to the title matchup against Florida State, knocking out UCLA and James Madison in the process.

After dropping Game 1 to the Seminoles on Tuesday, Oklahoma’s offense rallied, outscoring FSU 11-3 in the final two games to clinch the title. It is the program’s fifth national championship overall and first since 2017.
