Only seven times since 1992 has the SEC Media Days predicted champion proceeded to win the SEC Championship,  which includes three of the last six seasons. Only twice in history, the last of which was 2018, have both the SEC Championship Game participants and eventual champion been predicted correctly. Out of 260 possible voters in 2019, LSU received three votes to win the SEC Championship.
