Rebels picked to finish fifth in rugged SEC West

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

HOOVER, Ala. — Ole Miss has a realistic chance of starting the 2015 season ranked among the nation’s top 20 teams in both major polls. Thursday morning, the Rebels were picked to finish fifth in the SEC West.

Such is life playing in the toughest sub conference in the nation. Three members of the media picked Ole Miss to win the West title and play for the SEC Championship in Atlanta. Auburn garnered the most votes (108) to win the title, finishing first in the poll over Alabama.

Behind the Crimson Tide were the LSU Tigers. Arkansas was picked fourth, while Texas A&M and Mississippi State were picked sixth and seventh, respectively, in the West. Georgia was an overwhelming favorite to win the East over Tennessee, Missour, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

Auburn was picked as the overall champion, followed by Alabama and Georgia. The 2015 All-SEC team will be announced Friday.
