2014 SEC Championship Football Schedule
Every year the SEC is one of the best conferences in all of college football.
The conference was split up into two divisions more than 20 years ago, the East and the West and immediately after dividing
into two divisions became the first conference in college football to play a championship game. That means that each year
two of the best teams in the country face off against one another, before all of the bowl games or the playoffs, to see who
has bragging rights entering conference play next year as well as who will have a shot at the National Championship. Last
year it was Auburn who defeated Missouri to become champion and the Tigers will certainly be looking to repeat while all of
the other schools in the SEC will be looking to take them down in their own quest for the title. An unblemished run through
the SEC is never easy with teams like South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M,
Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas, and LSU lurking on the schedule. The two teams who make it to the
SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome on December 6, 2014 will surely be two of the best in all of college football and will
put on a contest for the ages. Be sure to be in the stands for the 2014 SEC Championship with tickets from StubHub.
