What if SEC College Football Teams Had an All-Star Game in 2022?

Major League Baseball’s 2022 All-Star Game is slated for Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. While the Midsummer Classic won’t satisfy the hunger for football at this point in the summer, the All-Star Game got the staff at Athlon Sports thinking about potential all-star matchups at the college football level. What if the SEC had an all-star game during the offseason? The idea won’t come to fruition, but it’s an interesting concept to ponder as we tick away the days until kickoff and the conference's media days beginning on Monday in Atlanta.

How would a potential East versus West All-Star Game break down for the SEC in 2022? Using Athlon Sports’ projected all-conference team for ’22, here’s a look at a potential starting lineup for each division. We also added a caveat: Every team had to be represented in one of the starting spots on offense or defense.

Which division has the advantage? Let’s us know at @AthlonSports:
