FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas softball team will play as the No. 2 seed in the 2021 SEC Softball Tournament, which begins for the Razorbacks on Thursday, May 13, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. By virtue of their top-four seed, the Hogs received a bye to the quarterfinals and await the winner of No.7-seed Tennessee and No.10-seed Texas A&M at approximately 4 p.m. on SEC Network.
The Razorbacks (40-8, 19-5 SEC) earned a share of the program’s first SEC regular season title with Florida. Since Arkansas and Florida did not meet in the regular season, the win-loss record against the highest seeded common opponent serves as the tiebreaker. The Gators went 2-1 versus No. 3-seed Alabama, while the Razorbacks finished 1-2.
The SEC Tournament utilizes a single-elimination format and includes all 13 softball playing member institutions.
