NCAA Most Wins to Start Softball Season
This unofficial Division I list (originally researched in 2021) is based on:
- media guides and websites (where available) of teams that appear on the Winning Percentage list in the 2021 NCAA Records Book and/or teams with 200 or more appearances in the NFCA poll (1995-present)
- this article (thanks to Jessica Bame for the link)
- ESPN announcing during the 2021 Texas series that the record for the best start to a season was 35-0 by Oregon and Canisius
On April 10th, 2022, both OU and the NCAA Softball Twitter account noted that the last 35-0 start was by UCLA in 1999. However, the 2021 media guides for Oregon and UCLA, as well as this 2017 Oregon game recap, showed 35-0 starts in more recent seasons.
