Both teams enter this weekend vying for a top four seed in next week’s SEC Tournament. Currently, UT is in third place, while Auburn is in sixth. Arkansas has already clinched the SEC Regular Season championship. The Alabama Crimson Tide are second.

Just behind the Lady Vols are the Missouri Tigers and Florida Gators. However, one game separates the, and Auburn is one game out of a top four spot. They are one of four teams with an 11-10 record. Simply put, this series is huge for both teams.

Tournament play begins Tuesday, but teams with a top four seed won’t play until next Thursday. Since Tuesday is a play-in game for the two lowest seeds, which in this case will be the South Carolina Gamecocks and Texas A&M Aggies, the Lady Vols and Auburn will begin play Wednesday at the latest but hope to begin Thursday.

On Saturday, Tennessee softball will honor nine seniors for a Senior Day event. That includes five fifth-year players, four fourth-year players who can return next year due to the 2020 COVID eligibility ruling and one junior who is graduating early, Anna Fox.
