Tuskegee may have been three games from winning a national championship last year, but they still have some proving to do in the SIAC West. Miles, the 2015 SIAC Champions, were picked to finish above Tuskegee, which made its third straight Division II playoffs appearance last season.
Defending SIAC East champion was picked to finish first in its division, with Morehouse and Fort Valley State coming in second and third.

Here is the full predicted finish:
1. Albany State
3. Fort Valley State
4. Clark Atlanta
