The 2012 SEC Championship Game was played on December 1, 2012, in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, and determined the 2012 football champion of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The game featured the Georgia Bulldogs, winners of the SEC Eastern Division vs the Alabama Crimson Tide, the winner of the SEC Western Division.

Georgia was the designated "home" team. The game was televised by CBS Sports for the twelfth straight season. Kickoff was scheduled at 4:00 (EST).[2] Alabama won the game 32-28 improving their record to 4-4 in the title game. Alabama's Eddie Lacy was named MVP after rushing for 181 yards and two touchdowns.

NotesEdit

This was Alabama's 8th appearance in the title game. The previous seven appearances were all against the Florida Gators. This was Georgia's 5th appearance and second consecutive SEC Championship game. This was the first meeting between the schools since 2008. Since 2006, the winner of this game has played in the BCS National Championship Game six straight times with a record of 6-1 (LSU was defeated by fellow SEC member Alabama following winning the 2011 SEC Championship game).
