After a 5-0 start on opening weekend, the University of Alabama softball team moved into the top five in both national polls that were released Tuesday. The Crimson Tide rank No. 5 in the USA Today/NFCA poll and No. 4 in the Softball poll.

Florida moved into the No. 1 position in both polls. Auburn is No. 2 and Florida State No. 3 in both lists while UCLA sneaks in at No. 5 in the USA Softball poll.
