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 25th-annual title game is set for December 3 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.

CBS Sports’ national coverage of the 2015 SEC Championship game, which saw Alabama defeat Florida, 29-15, was the highest-rated college football game of the year. The SEC Championship game averaged an overnight household rating/share in the metered markets of 8.3/17, up 8%, from last year’s 7.7/16 for Alabama-Missouri.

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 has drawn 22 capacity crowds in its 24-year history. Only 1993 (Birmingham) and 1995 (Atlanta) were not sellouts.

The SEC, along with AMB Sports & Entertainment (AMBSE) and the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA), recently announced an agreement to host the SEC Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta through 2026. The new agreement allows the SEC the option of adding up to two successive five-year extensions.

The Georgia Dome has hosted the SEC Championship Game for 22 years beginning in 1994, with capacity crowds in the last 20 consecutive years. By the end of the new agreement, including options, the Championship will have been played in Atlanta a total of 43 years. Mercedes-Benz Stadium is set to open in 2017, with 2016 set to be the final SEC Championship Game held in the Georgia Dome.
