Florida,Alabama set to square off at Sec Championship.


ATLANTA, Ga – The No. 1 ranked college football team in the nation is set to take on the Florida Gators on Saturday, as the Georgia Dome hosts its final SEC Championship game.
The Alabama Crimson Tide is a heavy, 21-point favorite to win the game, which kicks off at 4 pm.
Head coach Nick Saban’s team is undefeated this season, and faces a Florida squad that suffered an embarrassing lost to arch-rival Florida State last week.



The next SEC championship game will be held in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Saturday’s game kicks off a huge month for college football in Atlanta. Next up is the second annual Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl on Dec. 17, also in the Georgia Dome.
And finally, on Dec. 31, is the biggest Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl in history, in which the game hosts a national semifinal college football playoff game. The other semifinal will be at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ.
“The anticipation of the College Football Playoff Semifinal coming to our city is off the charts” said Percy Vaughn, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl chairman. “Fans of our bowl have had this date circled on their calendars for a long time.”
“This will be the most significant college football game ever played in Atlanta and we’re proud that the road to the national championship comes through Atlanta!” said Gary Stokan, Peach Bowl, Inc. president and CEO.

 The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl ticket office sold more than 45,900 tickets to local and regional buyers. A record 97 percent of 2015 ticket buyers renewed their purchases for this year’s bowl game. The remaining tickets are allocated to the bowl’s two participating teams who will be announced by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee December 4.
The teams that will be playing in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, along with the Fiesta Bowl, will be announced at noon on Sunday, after Saturday’s full slate of conference championship games.
