    A. TWO-TEAM TIE

    1. Head-to-head competition between the two tied teams.

    2. Records of the tied teams within the division.

    3. Head-to-head competition vs. the team within the division with the best overall record (divisional and non-divisional) Conference record and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken from first to last.

    4. Overall record vs. all common non-divisional opponents.

    5. Combined record vs. all common non-divisional teams.

    6. Record vs. common non-divisional team with the best overall Conference (divisional and non-divisional) record and proceeding through other common non-divisional teams based on their order of finish within their division.

    7. The tied team with the highest ranking in the Bowl Championship Series Standings following the last weekend of regular-season games shall be the divisional representative in the SEC Championship Game.

    B. THREE (OR MORE) TEAM TIE

    1. (Once the tie has been reduced to two teams, go to the two-team tie-breaker format.)

    2. Combined head-to-head record among the tied teams.

    3. Record of the tied teams within the division.

    4. Head-to-head competition vs. the team within the division with the best overall (divisional and non-divisional) Conference record and proceeding through the division. Multiple ties within the division will be broken from first to last.

    5. Overall record vs. non-division teams.

    6. Combined record vs. all common non-divisional teams.

    7. Record vs. common non-divisional team with the best overall Conference (divisional and non-divisional) record and proceeding through other common non-divisional teams based on their order of finish within their division.

    8. The tied team with the highest ranking in the Bowl Championship Series Standings following the last weekend of regular-season games shall be the divisional representative in the SEC Championship Game, unless the second of the tied teams is ranked within five-or-fewer places of the highest ranked tied team. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the SEC Championship Game.

    It would go deep into tie breakers because Missouri beat Georgria who beat South Carolina who beat Missouri. For that to happen Missouri would have to lose a game, South Carolina would have to beat Florida and Georgia would have to beat Auburn and Kentucky. Yesterday, I heard the highest ranked team would likely get the bid to play in the SEC Championship game which means Georgia is out because of their loss to Vanderbilt which they fumbled away a 14 point lead in the 4th quarter. Which would likely be South Carolina because if Missouri loses one game late (either Mississippi or Texas A&M) they would likely drop below South Carolina assuming South Carolina can beat Clemson which is no easy feat. If that happens Missouri might still get in. Georgia's only hope to get in would be for Missouri to lose 2 more games and Georgia win out because Georgia has a head-to-head tie breaker with South Carolina. If Missouri wins out all this is moot because they control their own destiny.

    Wow, tough one...the team with the best record, and tie would go to the team that won the head-to-head competition.
