The SEC media has sent in its prediction for the conference standings from top to bottom, and it includes what would be a highly-anticipated re-match between Alabama and Georgia in the SEC Championship game.Blog Photo - SEC Media Days: Alabama Crimson Tide selected to win conference again

Alabama is an overwhelming favorite to win the West Division with 225 (92.6 percent) of the votes, while Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M are picked to come in second—which probably means a Week 3 loss for the Aggies against the Tide.

For the third year in a row, Georgia has been picked to win the East Division. The Dawgs are followed by South Carolina, whose Jadeveon Clowney says most opposing quarterbacks (including Aaron Murray) are scared of him.

There's not much to argue with here. The only changes I would make is for Missouri to finish over Tennessee in the East and LSU to beat out Texas A&M for the second spot in the West.

Alabama needs to be careful though—the media has been wrong about the SEC champion in 17 out of the last 21 years.

Here are the rest of the media's predictions, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel:

Eastern Division
Georgia (149) -- 1,570
South Carolina (75) -- 1,474
Florida (19) -- 1,300
Vanderbilt -- 858
Tennessee -- 694
Missouri -- 577
Kentucky -- 331
Western Division
Alabama (225) -- 1,681
Texas A&M (11) -- 1,333
LSU (7) -- 1,324
Ole Miss -- 883
Auburn -- 579
Mississippi State -- 516
