With 154 first-place votes, SEC media members selected Alabama to win the 2014 conference crown.
LSU garnered just nine first-place votes and is pegged fifth in the overall race. The Tigers are picked to finish third in the Western Division behind Alabama and Auburn.
Senior offensive tackle La'el Collins earned a place on the preseason All-SEC first team; however, no Tigers made the first team defense.
LSU kicks off the 2014 campaign on August 30th against Wisconsin in Houston.
