HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Media members at the yearly SEC Media Days cast their vote for who they believe will win the SEC Championship in 2016. With an overwhelming majority of the votes, Alabama was picked to three-peat as SEC Champions.

Alabama was picked to win the SEC West. This would be choice that seems obvious given that they are projected to win the SEC Championship, but last year Auburn was projected to win the championship but not the West.
