The 1992 SEC Championship Game was played on December 5, 1992 at Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama. The game was the inaugural championship game and determined the 1992 football champion of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The Alabama Crimson Tide, winners of the Western division of the SEC, defeated the Florida Gators, who won the Eastern division, by a score of 28-21. The SEC was the first conference in college football to have a conference championship game. Five other conferences currently have conference championship games (Big 10, ACC, Pac-12, CUSA, & MAC).
Following the game, Alabama would advance to the Sugar Bowl where they would defeat the Miami Hurricanes in winning the program's 12th national championship. Florida would advance to the Gator Bowl where they would defeat the North Carolina State Wolfpack.
Alabama played Florida in the first SEC Championship Game on December 5, 1992. The Gators scored first on an Errict Rhett 5-yard touchdown run to lead 7–0. The Tide would respond in scoring the next 21 points. Their first points would come later in the first on a Derrick Lassic 3-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 7–7. In the second quarter, Curtis Brown would score on a 30-yard touchdown reception from Jay Barker to take a 14–7 lead at the half.
Alabama would further extend their lead to 21–7 in the third on a 15-yard Derrick Lassic touchdown run. Down by 14, the Gators would respond with a pair of touchdowns, tying the game at 21 midway through the fourth quarter. Willie Jackson would score first on a 4-yard touchdown reception on a pass from Shane Matthews late in the third, and Errict Rhett would knot the game at 21 with just over eight minutes remaining in the contest. With momentum in the favor of the Gators, with just over 3:00 remaining in the game, Antonio Langham would return a Matthews interception 21-yards for a touchdown in providing the final 28–21 margin.
