TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The University of Hawaii and the University of Alabama, two teams with potent offenses, square off this week at an NCAA Division I softball super regional in Tuscaloosa.

The winner of the three game series will advance to the Division I Softball World Series in Oklahoma City.

The Crimson Tide score more than seven runs a game.  They hit exactly 100 home runs this year.

Hawaii has even more fire power.  The Wahine have hit an NCAA record 149 home runs.

"They're doing something right," Alabama head coach Pat Murphy said.  "I mean, the leadoff (hitter, Kelly Majam) has 29 home runs which would be extraordinary in college baseball let alone softball.  It just never happens.  You don't see that," Murphy added.

The game airs live on ESPN-U at 12:30 p.m. (HST).
