The game is scheduled for Dec. 2, with kickoff set for 4 p.m. ET. Alabama has won the SEC Championship Game in each of the last three seasons and then continued on to the College Football Playoff.

If the season ended today, Georgia and Alabama would meet in the SEC Championship Game. The Bulldogs clinched the SEC East with a win over South Carolina in Week 10. However, Auburn can still win the SEC West if the Tigers beat Alabama.
