Kentucky picked last in SEC East

Kentucky was picked to finish last in the Southeastern Conference East Division, according to a vote by media members at the event.

The poll, which was released on the final day of the Media Days event, also had linebacker Avery Williamson and defensive end Alvin “Bud” Dupree named to the defense’s third team.

As expected, defending national champion Alabama was named to repeat, garnering 182 first-place votes to 38 for Georgia, the next highest vote getter. South Carolina (18) and Texas A&M (4) and Louisiana State (1) were the only others to receive a first-place vote.

The East Division voting was Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Missouri and Kentucky.

The West Division voting was Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, Auburn, Mississippi State and Arkansas.

  • Official attendance for 2013 SEC Media Days was 1,239, a new high for the event. Previous high was 1,085 last year.
  • The SEC also announced that the SEC Network will officially launch on Aug. 21, 2014 at 7 p.m.
