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 24th-annual title game is set for December 5 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 2009 SEC Championship Game earned an 11.8 rating and a 24 share, marking the highest-rated SEC Championship Game in history. The game matched the No. 1 Florida Gators (12-0) vs. the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (12-0).
The SEC Championship Game also has drawn capacity crowds in its short history. The game has been witnessed by 1,642,647 fans over the previous 22 championship games. It has drawn 21 capacity crowds in its 23-year history - only 1993 (Birmingham) and 1995 (Atlanta) were not sellouts.
