The SEC media has picked Alabama to win the conference this upcoming season.
As is tradition at the end of SEC Media Days, the media votes on who will win each division and the conference championship game. Alabama was picked as the SEC West and overall conference winner, while Tennessee was selected to win the SEC East.
The votes should be taken with a grain of salt—only three times in the last 20 years has the media correctly predicted the SEC winner.
Alabama does seem like a logical pick, as the Crimson Tide finished last season ranked No. 1 following their national championship win over Clemson.
Saban’s Alabama teams have finished first in the SEC West in six of his nine seasons, including four straight finishes in first.
