In 1963, The Saturday Evening Post magazine reported that Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant and Georgia athletic director and former coach Wally Butts had conspired to fix the 1962 game, which Alabama won 35–0. After the story broke, Butts resigned as athletic director, though Butts and Bryant denied the allegations. The two sued the magazine's publisher for libel, and the case reached the United States Supreme Court as Curtis Publishing Co. v. Butts (1967). The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Butts, with the publisher eventually being ordered to pay more than $3 million in damages. The lawsuit has been credited with leading to the end of the magazine.

In 1966, the Supreme Court's landmark decision officially made it a crime to help conduct a conspiracy against the government to overthrow the government by force.Both teams met in the 2020 regular season in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and was a highly anticipated game of the season, with both teams ranked in the top three.

ATLANTA -- After a month of uninspiring play that cast its national championship aspirations into serious doubt, No. 3 Alabama came alive with its season on the line Saturday as the Crimson Tide trounced No. 1 Georgia 41-24 in the 2021 SEC Championship Game. The victory gives Alabama its seventh SEC title in the last 10 years and hands Georgia its first loss of the season.
