No. 5 Alabama will start as the highest ranked SEC team in the field Friday and I am expecting an exciting battle between the Crimson Tide and No. 15 ranked Arkansas.
No. 11 Ole Miss, Tennessee (RV), Kentucky (RV) and Florida (RV) are expected to be among the other teams hoping to secure podium and top five spots at this year’s championships on the women’s side.
The Arkansas women’s team will be aiming for a ninth consecutive SEC title and 22nd overall, which also leads all programs.
Meanwhile, Arkansas will start as the squad to beat in the race for the 2021 SEC Cross Country Championships men’s team crown.
The No. 6 ranked Razorbacks returned to winning ways last season after Ole Miss won back-to-back crowns in 2018 and 2019 and they will be seeking to start another winning streak after eight straight titles from 2010-2017.
No. 22 Alabama and No. 28 Ole Miss are also among the top 30 ranked teams ready to compete for the conference title on Friday.
Will Arkansas sweep the Southeastern Conference titles again this season?
Let’s wait and see!
