Mathieu Leads A Host Of Tigers On AP All-SEC Teams

LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu has been named the top defensive player on The Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference team.

The team released Monday also tabbed LSU’s Les Miles as coach of the year after he guided the top-ranked Tigers (13-0) to a spot in the national championship game against their SEC West rival, No. 2 Alabama.
Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell was named freshman of the year despite injuries and disciplinary issues.
Alabama’s Heisman candidate Trent Richardson was named the top offensive player.
As expected, LSU and Alabama (11-1) dominated the selections, with both powerhouses placing five players on the first team. SEC East champion Georgia had four first-teamers.
