BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Dec. 28, 2020)-----More than 130 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 146 graduates represent nine SEC universities that are slated to compete in postseason play beginning December 30 with Florida's appearance in the Cotton Bowl.
