Alabama fans outnumbering Gators fans in Georgia Dome

ATLANTA -- It's 20 minutes to kickoff here in the Georgia Dome. Alabama's Million Dollar Band is on the field. There seems to be more Alabama fans here than Florida fans. I'd say it's about 60-40 Alabama.

Alabama's crowd advantage is a function of the Southeastern Conferences ticket policy for the SEC championship game. The first SEC championship in 1992 was between Alabama and Florida at Birmingham's Legion Field. Naturally, more Alabama fans purchased tickets. Legion Field is only 45 minutes away from Tuscaloosa, Ala. Each year, the SEC allows the previous year's ticket holders to renew their tickets. Many Alabama fans have renewed their tickets every year since 1992.
