DID YOU KNOW?
Since the Southeastern Conference was split into East and West Divisions and a game was played between division winners to determine the SEC Champion in 1992, this will be the first time that Georgia and Auburn have faced each other to vie for the crown. The Tigers are designated as the home team and the Bulldogs as the visiting team. Western Division teams are designated the home team in odd-numbered years whereas Eastern Division teams are in even-numbered years.
This makes Georgia’s sixth appearance in the SEC Championship Game since the conference started having a game to crown a champion in 1992. The Bulldogs have won two SEC Championship games and a total of 12 SEC Championships in school history.
