It will be another rugged year in the SEC and as has become custom, expectations are that a team from the nation’s toughest football conference will be attempting to earn the league’s sixth straight BCS national title.

Here are a few quick notes on SEC football before we get to the 2011 predictions:

In 2010 49 SEC players were drafted by NFL teams. After the SEC the Big Ten had the most draft picks with 34.

Twenty-one former SEC players were on the rosters for Super Bowl teams Green Bay and Pittsburgh.

SEC football teams claimed six of the top 10 spots for attendance in 2010.

In 2010, 6,521,151 people attended SEC football games.

The SEC has produced the last two Heisman Trophy winners: Alabama running back Mark Ingram and last year’s winner Auburn QB Cam Newton.

Now for the 2011 predictions.

After making the weekly picks, it was a surprise to see Georgia at 12-0. Alabama and LSU battle it out for the West title with the nod going to the Tide.

Alabama captures the SEC title with a win over Georgia in the conference championship game.

The victory places Bama in the BCS national title game against Oklahoma. Georgia earns a bid to the Sugar Bowl to give the conference two BCS teams.
