Alabama moves up in latest USA TODAY/NFCA Coaches Poll Top 25

With some late-game heroics, Alabama softball avoided the sweep against No. 5 Georgia on the road and will now look to bounce back with a few non-conference games before getting back into SEC play.

The Crimson Tide will face Samford and UAB at home over the next few days and then host No. 16 Virginia Tech.

In the latest rankings, Patrick Murphy and his team move up a single spot despite the recent losses. This team has top-10 potential and has plenty of time left in the season to make significant progress in the rankings.

Playing in the SEC, Alabama will be tested over the next couple of weeks with some intense in-conference competition. In the latest rankings, the Tide find themselves a the sixth-highest-ranked SEC program.

Keep in mind that next season, Oklahoma and Texas will join the conference. They rank No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, in the latest top-25.
