NORMAN – Due to rain and lightning in the area, Friday's NCAA Regional game between Oklahoma and North Dakota State has been suspended until Saturday afternoon. The game will resume at 1:30 p.m. with the Bison leading the Sooners 2-0 and one out in the bottom of the first inning.

The winner of OU-NDSU would then face Tulsa in a winner's bracket game at 5:30 p.m., while the loser would meet Arkansas in an elimination game at 8 p.m. All three games Saturday can be seen on ESPN3.com or the WatchESPN app.

Oklahoma head coach Patty Gasso was asked after the suspension was announced how she thought her team would respond.

“The idea is to reset and start over,” she said. “This team knows how to do that, so maybe this break will work for us. We've been in these situations; it seems like every year something trips us up in the way of staying on schedule. It's not something that's uncommon, and whatever cards are dealt we just have to play.”

Fans with session one tickets can use them for Saturday's first game. Fans with all-session tickets would need to use their session one ticket to that game, as well. The stadium would then need to be cleared between the first and second games. Session two tickets would then be needed for the remaining games at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
