The SEC Network and ESPN will once again be on site to bring SEC Media Days to a national audience. SEC Football Media Days has drawn over 1,200 attendees each of the last three years. Only five times since 1992 has the SEC Media Days predicted champion proceeded to win the SEC Championship, with Alabama being the last in 2014.
