2020 SEC Football Championship

December 19, 2020
Mercedes-Benz Stadium - Atlanta, Georgia

No. 1 Alabama used an unrelenting offensive assault to pound out an epic 52-46 victory over No. 7 Florida and capture the 2020 SEC Championship on Saturday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The Crimson Tide scored early and often, building a 35-17 lead by halftime on the strength of four first-half touchdowns by running back Najee Harris and a record-setting total of five overall. But Florida fought back gamely in the second half, drawing within one score three times.

The outcome remained in doubt until Alabama recovered a Florida on-side kick following a late Florida touchdown pass from Gators quarterback Kyle Trask to tight end Kyle Pitts. Trask's subsequent 2-point conversion run had cut Bama's lead to just six.

That was, however, as close as Florida could get.
