Alabama is the clear-cut favorite to win the SEC this year, but — as usual — there is a division between Georgia and Florida.

With no SEC Media Days this summer, the USA Today Network held its own among the SEC coverage team members virtually, and Alabama was the unanimous pick not only to win the West but the overall SEC crown.

In the East, it was a dead heat, with Florida and Georgia finishing in a tie when the votes were tabulated (at 97 points). Georgia did have one more first-place vote than Florida.

Tennessee (72) was a distant third in the East voting, followed by Kentucky (64), South Carolina (45), Missouri (33) and Vanderbilt (15).

Points were compiled on a 7-6-5, etc., basis, with seven points going to the predicted winner of the division.
