Fans are pouring into Atlanta for this weekend’s Southeastern Conference Championship game between Auburn and Missouri. Traveling to the city for the title game in the Georgia Dome has been a tradition for college football fans for more than a decade. The SEC title game has been held at the Georgia Dome since 1994. The current contract with the SEC means the conference will hold its football championship in Atlanta through 2017. But the Dome is slated for demolition that year.
Tickets for Saturday's SEC Championship game at the Georgia Dome were selling for hundreds of dollars online. Authorities say criminals are looking to capitalize on the demand by selling counterfeit tickets.
Tickets to the SEC Championship football game in Atlanta next weekend continued to climb as Georgia and Alabama each demolished their archrivals. The game will be a de facto national semi-final, with the winner advancing to the BCS National Championship game in Miami.
