Now that the SEC softball tournament has wrapped up, the Alabama and Auburn teams look ahead to the NCAA tournament with the hopes of winning a national championship on their minds.

The Auburn Tigers will play in the Tucson Regional hosted by #6 Arizona. The Tigers will face off against Colorado State.

The SEC regular season champs come in as the eighth national seed; the 52-7 Crimson Tide will host the Tuscaloosa Regional round and we're in for an in-state game as the Tide will play Alabama State on Friday, May 17.

The Tuscaloosa Regional will also host Arizona State and Lipscomb.

Many are saying Alabama should've earned a higher seed than eighth, but head coach Patrick Murphy says they're gonna use it as motivation and ride it all the way to Oklahoma City.
