The SouthCo Championship Game refers to the annual title game to determine the Southern Conference's footbal champion, played alternatively in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta or at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. The game accordingly pits a team from the East Division against a team from the West division - in years in which the game is hosted in Dallas (odd), the West Division is regarded as the home team, and in years in which the game is hosted in Atlanta (even), the East Division is regarded as the home team. The participants of the SouthCo championship game have an automatic invite to the Sugar Bowl (winner) and Peach Bowl (runner-up) unless the champion is invited to the national championship game (in which case the runner-up assumes the champion's Sugar Bowl bid) or unless either of those games are the host of the national championship game, in which the according team receives a bid to play elsewhere.
