Arkansas is the defending SEC Champion in men’s cross country and won 17 consecutive league crowns in the sport from 1991-2007.

Alabama claimed three first-place votes on the men’s side, following in second place with 20 points. Florida was third with 29 points, Georgia fourth with 34 and Tennessee rounded out the top five with 52 points.

Florida has won back-to-back SEC cross country titles on the women’s side and earned 17 total points for the top spot. The Gators have won five titles in the history of their program (1984, 1996, 1997, 2009 and 2010). Arkansas was a close second with 18 total points and five first-place tallies, while Vanderbilt was third with 30 total points. Georgia (41 points) and Mississippi State (58 points) rounded out the top-five of the women’s poll.

Points for the men's poll were awarded on a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 basis while the women's poll was awarded on a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11 basis.
