The Southeastern Conference's Eastern and Western Division winners will meet in Atlanta's Georgia Dome to battle for the league championship and the right to represent the conference in the College Football Playoff. The 23rd-annual title game is set for December 6 and will be televised nationally by CBS Sports.

The game was born as a result of 1992 conference expansion, which saw Arkansas and South Carolina become the first members added in SEC history. Under NCAA regulations, a conference with 12 members may play an additional football game to determine its champion, provided the regular season is played in divisions.

The participants of the game are determined each year during the eight-game regular-season conference schedule as the teams with the best overall SEC winning percentage in each division.

The SEC Championship Game has drawn 20 capacity crowds in its 22-year history. Only 1993 (Birmingham) and 1995 (Atlanta) were not sellouts.
