LSU, Alabama Top Preseason Coaches All-SEC Teams

Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama and LSU are in a dead heat once again. The defending national champion Crimson Tide and reigning Southeastern Conference champ Tigers each placed 11 players on the preseason Coaches All-SEC teams. The league released the teams on Thursday. The Tigers have a league-high seven first-team picks. That's three more than Alabama, which beat LSU to claim the national title. That includes four on the defensive side, led by Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu and fellow defensive back Eric Reid. Linemen Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo are also projected to earn first-team honors. Arkansas is third with 10 total players selected. The Razorbacks' four first-team picks include quarterback Tyler Wilson. The first-teamers also include Alabama's Outland Trophy-winning offensive lineman Barrett Jones, who is moving from left tackle to center.
