  • Auburn had the best division record, but did not participate in postseason play due to NCAA probation. Alabama later forfeited all 1993 regular season wins and one tie due to NCAA violations.
    Rankings from AP Poll

The 1993 SEC Championship Game was won by the Florida Gators 28-13 over the Alabama Crimson Tide. The game was played at Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama on December 4, 1993 and was televised to a national audience on ABC.

In the 1993 SEC Championship game the Western Division was represented by the Alabama Crimson Tide even though they finished second in the division. The first place Auburn Tigers were on NCAA probation which prohibited them from participating in post season games. Ironically Alabama would also later have their 1993 season affected by the NCAA when in 1995, the NCAA found Antonio Langham guilty of receiving improper benefits after signing with an agent following the 1992 season, forcing Alabama to forfeit all games in which Langham competed.[2] Officially, Alabama finished the 1993 season with a 1–12 record, only winning their bowl game.[3]
