From there, Alabama scored a 49.275 on the floor exercise, led by Stack-Eaton's 9.9, and a 49.4 on the vault, led by 9.95s from junior Marissa Gutierrez and sophomore Diandra Milliner.
The Tide finished off with a strong uneven bars rotation, scoring a 49.4, powered by 9.9s from its last three competitors, junior Ashley Sledge, Stack-Eaton and Priess.
Stack-Eaton was fourth in the all-around with a 39.600 while Priess was seventh with a 39.475.
Alabama, Florida and Arkansas will be joined by the Pac 12 trio of UCLA, Utah and Stanford, the top three finishers in the first semifinal session earlier on Friday.
