ATLANTA (AP) -- Alabama running back Trent Richardson is a unanimous choice for offensive player of the year, while 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.

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.
