Alabama Softball Hangs On To No. 11
For the second-straight week, Alabama is ranked No. 11 in the USA Today/NFCA Poll, with no new teams entering or falling out of the top ten. Florida is a near-unanimous No. 1 pick, earning 30 of the 32 possible first-place votes. Oregon slides into the No. 2 spot ahead of Tennessee, who suffered its first loss of the season last weekend. Arizona State made the biggest slide, as a three-loss weekend dropped them from No. 3 to No. 10.
In the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll, Alabama fell one spot from No. 10 last week to No. 11 this week. The Seminoles, who also went 4-1 last weekend in Tuscaloosa, jumped from No. 11 to No. 9. The Gators and the Lady Vols remain atop the rankings for the third-straight week.
Besides Alabama, nine other SEC teams are ranked in both polls: Florida (1/1), Tennessee (2/3), Kentucky (8/10), Texas A&M (13/16), Missouri (15/18), Georgia (18/19) and LSU (24/23). Auburn and Mississippi State are also receiving votes in both polls.
This weekend, the Crimson Tide open SEC play hosting South Carolina (14-4) for a three-game series at Rhoads Stadium. Game times are 6:30 p.m. CT on Friday, 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
