South Carolina was the overwhelming choice to win the league with 114 first-place votes.
In the West, Alabama was the pick to not only take home first place but was the overwhelming choice to win the SEC crown.
The Tide collected 111 first-place votes.
Alabama was followed by LSU (30), Arkansas (23), Mississippi State (1), Auburn and Ole Miss (2).
