How to watch Alabama softball vs. LSU in 2024 SEC Softball Tournament

While the season did not end with an SEC title for Patrick Murphy and the Alabama Crimson Tide softball team, there is still cause for celebration for fans of the program. In a press release from ESPN on Wednesday afternoon, it was announced that the Alabama vs. Arkansas matchup was the most viewed regular season game since 2022.

According to ESPN, the contest between the Tide and Hogs recorded a staggering 570,000 viewers. The 2024 season also happened to be the most watched regular season for college softball on the ESPN family of networks since 2015 with each game averaging 190,000 viewers, up 13% compared to 2023.

There’s no denying that college softball is one of the fastest-growing sports in the country and the record viewership is all the evidence needed.
