ATLANTA (AP) - After sweeping through the season unbeaten,

top-ranked Alabama has claimed the top three individual awards on

The Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference football team.

Running back Mark Ingram was named offensive player of the year,

linebacker Rolando McClain the top defensive player and Nick Saban

picked up his second straight coach of the year award Monday.

Vanderbilt running back and return specialist Warren Norman was

named freshman of the year.

Alabama routed Florida in the SEC championship game and will

face Texas for the BCS title. The Crimson Tide (13-0) was rewarded

with seven players on the AP first team, more than any other

school. The Gators (12-1) were next with six first-teamers,

including quarterback Tim Tebow.

The 2009 Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference football
