It is the Crimson Tide’s third-straight week at No. 15 in the NFCA poll and second-straight in the USA Softball poll. Additionally, the Crimson Tide also moved up two spots in the NCAA RPI rankings to No. 18. Alabama is now 25-11 overall and 6-6 in SEC play after falling in two out of its three games last weekend against sixth-ranked Florida.
