BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Dec. 26, 2018)-----A total of 156 Southeastern Conference football student-athletes are eligible to wear the SEC Graduation Patch in postseason 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 156 football student-athletes from the 11 SEC schools that have qualified for postseason play will be participating in bowl games beginning December 27 with Vanderbilt's appearance in the Texas Bowl to January 1 when four SEC teams will be in action.
