BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A total of 116 Southeastern Conference football student-athletes are eligible to wear the SEC Graduation Patch in post-season bowl games, signifying that they have earned their college degrees.

The SEC introduced the patch in 2016 season for student-athletes in all sports who have already earned their degree, but have not exhausted their eligibility. The SEC logo patch on their uniforms is replaced with a special patch with the word "Graduate" underneath the conference logo. The patch is similar in design for all conference schools, but it is school-specific in color.

The 116 football student-athletes from the nine SEC schools that have qualified for post-season play will be participating in bowl games beginning December 27 with Missouri's appearance in the Texas Bowl to January 1 when five SEC teams will be in action.
