Alabama Softball Back In Top Ten
Alabama moved up one spot in the latest USA Today/NFCA poll, returning to the No. 10 spot after two-straight weeks at No. 11. Despite suffering its first loss of the season to Ole Miss last Friday, Florida remains in the top spot for the fourth-straight week, claiming 27 of 32 possible first-place votes. Another loss last weekend dropped Tennessee to the No. 4 spot, as UCLA jumped the Lady Vols to join PAC-12 foe Oregon in the top three.
In the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll, the Crimson Tide jumped two spots from No. 11 last week to No. 9 this week. Alabama jumped ahead of Florida State and Kentucky, who sit at No. 10 and 11 this week, respectively. The Gators remain a near-unanimous top pick, earning 14 of 20 possible first-place votes, with No. 2 Tennessee earning two and No. 3 UCLA earning the remaining four.
This week, eight SEC teams are ranked in both polls: Florida (1/1), Tennessee (4/2), Kentucky (9/11), Alabama (10/9), Texas A&M (13/15), Georgia (15/17), Missouri (16/18) and Auburn (24/23). LSU is ranked No. 25 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll but dropped from the USA Today/NFCA top-25 and is receiving votes, as are Mississippi State and Arkansas in both polls.
Alabama hosts Mississippi Valley State (2-17) tonight at 6 p.m. CDT before hitting the road for a three-game SEC series in Oxford against the Ole Miss Rebels (15-9, 1-2 SEC) this weekend.
