The NCAA has ruled out Alabama-Texas A&m as a potential SEC title matchup on the road, according to a report from ESPN.

The SEC title will be decided by the championship game between Alabama and Texas A &M, according a source familiar with the matter.

The Alabama-A& M matchup would be the first SEC title in the SEC since 2011, when Texas beat Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game.

The matchup would mark the first time a SEC title has been decided by a non-conference championship game since the 2012 title game between the SEC and Pac-12.

Alabama-Tulsa was played in December 2012 and the game was ultimately decided by one point.

The last time a conference title game was decided by an unranked team was the 2001 season, when Alabama beat Texas A and the SEC title.
