Alabama also placed sixth in the preseason NFCA/USA Today poll released last week and was voted to finish third in the Southeastern Conference in the preseason coaches poll.
Tennessee is the preseason favorite in the ESPN/USA Softball poll, finishing three points ahead of defending national champion Oklahoma. Eight SEC teams are ranked in the top 25, including No.1 Tennessee, No. 3 Florida, No. 6 Alabama, No. 11 Texas A&M, No. 14 Kentucky, No. 17 Missouri, No. 19 LSU and No. 21 Georgia.
Alabama and Tennessee do not meet in regular season play this season.
