In the event of a tie for the division championship, the following procedures will be used to break all ties to determine the SEC Football Championship Game representative. All
Conference versus Conference Games (both division and non-division) will be counted in the Conference Standings.

TWO-TEAM TIE. In the event two teams are tied for a division title, the following procedure will be used in the following order:
A. Head-to-head competition between the two tied teams;
B. Records of the tied teams within the division;
C. Head-to-head competition against 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 and a tie for first place will be broken before a tie for fourth place);
D. Overall record against non-divisional teams;
E. Combined record against all common non-divisional teams;
F. Record against the common non-divisional team with the best overall Conference record (divisional or non-divisional) and proceeding through other common non-
    divisional teams based on their order of finish within their division; and
G. 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.

THREE-TEAM TIE (OR MORE). If three teams are tied for a division title, the following procedure will be used in the following order: (Note: If one of the procedures results in one
team being eliminated and two remaining, the two-team tiebreaker procedure as stated in No. 1 above will be used):
A. Combined head to head record among the tied teams;
B. Record of the tied teams within the division;
C. Head to head competition against the team within the division with the best overall Conference record (divisional and non divisional) and proceeding through the division
     (multiple ties within the division will be broken from first to last and a tie for first place will be broken before a tie for fourth place);
D. Overall Conference record against non divisional teams;
E. Combined record against all common non divisional teams;
F. Record against the common non divisional team with the best overall Conference record (divisional and non divisional) and proceeding through other common non
     divisional teams based on their order of finish within their division; and
G. 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.
