Another 5-0 weekend, including a top-10 road win, helped propel Alabama softball to No. 6 in this week’s national polls.

The Crimson Tide moved up to No. 6 in both the USA Today/NFCA poll and Softball poll after defeating its five opponents at last weekend’s Hillenbrand Invitational, including then-No. 9 Arizona. Alabama is one of five undefeated teams in the top 10 and is the second-highest ranked SEC team, only trailing Florida (3/3). Other top-10 SEC teams include Tennessee (7/8), Georgia (8/9) and LSU (9/7).

This weekend, Alabama makes its 2019 home debut at the Easton Bama Bash. Five games over three days at Rhoads Stadium begin Friday, Feb. 22, with the Tide welcoming Minnesota, Missouri State and Louisiana-Monroe.
