Auburn softball continues to get respect as they earn a place in another preseason poll.

D1Softball revealed its 2024 preseason poll on Tuesday, and the Tigers checked in at No. 19, which goes along with their No. 20 preseason ranking by Softball America.

Auburn is one of nine SEC teams to earn a place in D1Softball’s preseason poll. Tennessee is the highest-ranked team in the conference at No. 3 behind Stanford and Oklahoma. Georgia closes out the SEC’s top-10 representation by checking in at No. 6.

Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, and Florida join Auburn in the top 20. The Crimson Tide is just outside of the top 10 at No. 11. LSU, Arkansas, Auburn, and Florida are No. 17-20 respectively. South Carolina and Texas A&M round out the top 25 at No. 22 and No. 25.

Auburn will face a total of eight ranked teams in 2024. The Tigers will face ranked SEC squads in Arkansas, Texas A&M, Tennessee, LSU, and Alabama. In nonconference play, Auburn will face No. 7 Clemson and No. 14 Utah during the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge in Mexico from Feb. 15-17. Auburn will also host No. 24 Northwestern at the Jane B.
