Crimson Tide Softball:

The Alabama softball team will enter the 2017 season with another top-10 ranking.

The Crimson Tide is No. 7 in both the USA Today/NFCA and Softball polls released Tuesday. Alabama has been in the top 10 in every preseason poll since 2006.

Coach Patrick Murphy's team is coming off its 11th trip to the College World Series and a No. 6 final ranking. It is one of nine SEC teams in the preseason top 25 with No. 2 Auburn leading the way. Florida (4/3), LSU (4/5), and Georgia (12/10) also received top-10 rankings.

In total, Alabama will play 17 games against six teams ranked in the preseason polls. After not facing its cross-state rival in the 2016 regular season, the Tide will play host to Auburn May 5-7 in Tuscaloosa.

The season begins Feb. 10 at the Kickin' Chicken Classic in Conway, S.C. with games against Towson, Coastal Carolina and Youngstown State. The home opener is Feb. 15 against South Alabama.
