As expected, the two teams that squared off for the SEC championship this past weekend are well-represented on the all-conference team.
Tuesday afternoon, and as voted on by the coaches, the SEC announced its selections for the first- and second-teams. SEC champ Alabama, along with runnerup Missouri, each had seven players named to those two teams. Alabama had four named to the first-team, while Mizzou had three.
Ole Miss and Mississippi State each had three first-teamers. Auburn had six total selections, two on the first-team and four on the second-team.
Vanderbilt was the only league program without a player on either teams.
True freshman Nick Chubb, who didn’t take over as Georgia’s main option in the running game until midway through the season, was named as a first-team running back, while Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott, not Alabama’s Blake Sims, was named the first-team quarterback.
Also, Auburn center Reese Dismukes and Florida’s Vernon Hargreaves and Ole Miss’ Cody Prewitt, both defensive backs, earned All-SEC first-team honors for the second year in a row.
