As we head closer to the middle portion of June, one of the many signs that college football is right around the corner is the appearance of various polls and prognostications.

Once again, The Birmingham News has released various polls which attempt to project the final order of finish in the SEC. The prognostications are based on the votes of every football information director in the conference.

As not to leave anyone in suspense, the following rankings reveal who is expected to win each division, and also how the conference as a whole “shakes down” from top to bottom.

When the "I don't agree with those projections" party begins, you know college football is just beyond those trees! Let the rankings be projected and let the discussion commence!

1-Alabama 2-LSU (TIE) 2-Arkansas (TIE) 4-Auburn 5-Ole Miss 6-Miss. State

1-Florida 2-Georgia 3-South Carolina 4-Tennessee 5-Kentucky 6-Vanderbilt

Do the above rankings actually mean anything? No. However, I think we can all agree it gives the fans something to ponder and discuss as we inch closer to the month of September.

Speaking of September, the SEC has announced several start times for television purposes, and two of which involve the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Sept. 11 contest against Penn State will be a 6 p.m. kickoff and will be televised by ESPN. The following week (Sept. 18) the ‘Bama road contest at Duke will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will be televised regionally by ABC.
