— The Arkansas Razorbacks' men's and women's cross country teams finished atop SEC preseason polls voted on by the conference coaches.

Coaches aren't allowed to vote for their own team and the Razorbacks men received 11 of 12 first-place votes and the women 13 of 14, meaning only University of Arkansas, Fayetteville men's Coach Chris Bucknam and women's Coach Lance Harter didn't vote for Arkansas.

Alabama finished second in the men's poll with Ole Miss third. Missouri finished second in the women's poll with Ole Miss third.

The Razorbacks open the season Friday at the Cowboy Duals in Stillwater, Okla. Arkansas' lone home meet is the Chile Pepper Festival Sept. 30.
