The Georgia Dome was reduced to rubble Monday morning when it was demolished with explosives. It’s now just memories of past SEC Championship Games.
The largest crowd for the SEC title came in 2008 when Alabama played Florida. It’s not the only memory the Crimson Tide have in the building, which the program showed Monday when it posted this graphic on Twitter.

The stats in the image are eye-opening, particularly 10-1 under Nick Saban and a 9-game winning streak inside the dome.
Perhaps more impressive is it wasn’t just SEC title games, some were neutral site games to begin the regular season or College Football Playoff games with everything on the line.
Over the past week, memories have come pouring in from players such as Julio Jones who recalled his favorite moment in the dome playing for Alabama against Clemson. Perhaps the most memorable game came in 2012 when the Crimson Tide beat Georgia to win the SEC title and eventually Notre Dame for the National Championship.
Regardless of what players remember most, it’s clear the dome saw a lot of Alabama players and fans come through its doors. It will certainly be missed not just by Alabama fans, but by SEC fans around the country.
