Crimson Tide dominates media voting from SEC Media Days

Alabama favored to win league title, has 14 All-SEC selections

Alabama was the clear favorite to win the league title as the annual voting from SEC Media Days was released Friday morning.

The Crimson Tide received 193 votes to be crowned SEC champion, while Georgia was second with 69 votes.

The teams played for the 2017 national championship, but not the league title.

Alabama was picked to win the SEC Western Division, with Auburn second and Mississippi State third.

The Crimson Tide led with 14 selections for All-SEC, including seven for first-team: running back Damien Harris, offensive linemen Jonah Williams and Ross Pierschbacher, defensive lineman Raekwon Davis, linebackers Mack Wilson and Anfernee Jennings, and safety Deionte Thompson.

In comparison, Georgia had 12 selections, but just three with first-team status.
