Alabama picked to win SEC title in football

15 Juillet 2017

Alabama was an overwhelming choice to win the SEC title in 2017, with Georgia narrowly edging Florida to capture the East. Tennessee was picked third in the East, followed by South Carolina, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Missouri.

For the first time as head coach at Georgia, Kirby Smart has lofty preseason expectations to live up to. Following Georgia in order were Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Missouri.

Six times since 1992 the predicted champion at SEC Media Days has gone on to win the conference title. Auburn was a distant second with 11 first-place votes, followed by Georgia (6), LSU (3) and Florida (3).

Picked behind Alabama in the SEC West were Auburn, LSU, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Mississippi State and Mississippi. The media has, however, been correct two of the last three years as Alabama has won the last three championships.

League reporters have not fared well in selecting the overall champion in past years. Hurst was named second-team tight end, linebacker Skai Moore was named second-team linebacker, and Samuel was named third-team wide receiver.
