Legion Field: “The Old Gray Lady” on a gray day in December

Legion Field Birmingham

With the SEC championship game being played once again today in Atlanta between Alabama and Florida, we took a quick visit to the place where the inaugural SEC championship game was played 24 years ago –Legion Field.

It was a gray and chilly day when we took these photos today (Dec. 3, 2016) much like it was back on December 5, 1992. Interestingly, just like today’s 2016 Alabama team, the 1992 Crimson Tide was undefeated coming into the game, and was needing a win to play for the national championship.  Florida’s 1992 team also had 3 defeats on it’s record, the same as this 2016 Gators.

Another fact. 83,091 people attended the game in 1992. Today, Legion Field’s capacity is considerably smaller at 71, 594.

Enjoy the pictures and memories.
