If the Irish win, they will host either 8th seeded South Dakota St or 9th seeded Villanova in Sunday's 2nd round. That streak was snapped when they were defeated by SC, but that doesn't make what Mississippi State's women have done this year any less remarkable-and the seed reflects that.

This year's Final Four is in Columbus, Ohio, and will take place on March 30. This spring marks the first time the team has earned a No. 1 seed, and with both SC and UConn on the opposite side of the bracket in the same region, the Bulldogs wouldn't face either of their toughest opponents until the championship, should they make it. OR is the 2-seed in Notre Dame's region, Ohio St is the 3-seed, Texas A&M the 4-seed and DePaul the 5-seed.
UConn is a potential opponent for Notre Dame in the Final Four, should the Irish advance.

While the Bobcats are technically the away team, it'll feel very much like a home game for the Bobcats, as they're set to play their game in Storrs, Connecticut. "The growth of our program at this time past year, we were hoping to have done enough to get in". The Lexington Regional is stacked with former NCAA tournament winners with Baylor a 2-seed, Tennessee a No. 3 and Stanford a No. 4. Stanford potentially is headed to Lexington for the third straight year if it can advance.
Other notable teams among the Field of 64 include first-timers Nicholls State, Northern Colorado, Mercer and Seattle, as well as the only team to make every women's tournament in history - Tennessee.
