No. 1 Oklahoma State 2, No. 8 Oklahoma 1
The Big 12 regular season champions faced a first-half deficit after Oklahoma took the lead through Erika Middleton, but Oklahoma State rallied in the second stanza to claim a 2-1 victory. The Cowgirls leveled terms on a Gabriella Coleman strike before Jaci Jones bagged the game-winner in the 81st minute.
No. 5 Kansas 2, No. 4 West Virginia 0
The Jayhawks used two goals inside the first 30 minutes to sink the Mountaineers and reach the semifinals for the first time since 2015. Katie McClure opened the scoring in the 17th mintue and Isabella Cavalcante doubled Kansas' advantage on the half-hour mark to seal a momentous triumph against a West Virginia side that had won four of the last six conference tournament titles.
No. 2 Texas Tech 1, No. 7 Baylor 0
Kirsten Davis' strike in the 22nd minute proved to be the match-winner as Texas Tech edged Baylor in a cagey battle that produced just 12 total shot attempts. The Red Raiders are set to make their fifth semifinal appearance in their last seven seasons and will hope to replicate their success of winning the tournament in 2015.
No. 3 Texas 0, No. 6 TCU 0 (1-3 in PKs)
TCU reached the semifinals for the fourth time in program history after nipping rivals Texas 3-1 in a penalty shootout following a scoreless draw. Despite both teams combining for 45 shots, including 13 on frame, the game ended 0-0 and was decided in a shootout that saw Yazmeen Ryan, Grace Collins and Maddy Warren convert for the victorious Horned Frogs.
