The Crimson Tide hits the road for a midweek matchup in Mississippi.

Alabama softball is back on the road and looks to continue a new winning streak after closing out the LSU series with a win on Sunday in Baton Rouge. 

The Crimson Tide (21-2) plays at Southern Miss (17-8) Tuesday night at 4 for a midweek matchup. It is a the first of two midweek games for Alabama this week before the team heads back to Rhoads Stadium to take on No. 2 Florida State Wednesday night. 

Alabama leads the all-time series with the Golden Eagles 11-1. The lone Southern Miss win came in Hattiesburg in February of 2006. Since then, the Crimson Tide have won 11 straight in the series with the most recent meeting being a 6-3 Alabama win at Rhoads Stadium last season.

The game can be streamed on C-USA TV or listened to on the radio on 97.5 in Tuscaloosa.
