Tracking SEC bowl swag

By Edward Aschoff

Bowl games don't just bring players another game for the season. They bring fun, week-long experiences that give players a chance to really unwind before ending the season.

They also bring free stuff -- free stuff that's well within the rules of the NCAA! And who doesn't love free stuff?

The better the bowl, the better the swag.

Alabama players are in for a real treat when they collect their goodies for the Discover BCS National Championship. They, along with Notre Dame players, will receive free Tourneau watches (fancy) and a gift suite, according to the Sports Business Journal.

What is a gift suite you ask? Well, according to the Sports Business Journal it's ...
"Gift suites are set up as private events in which game participants, and often bowl VIPs, are given an order form and allowed to select a gift, or gifts, up to a value that is predetermined by each specific bowl, not to exceed the NCAA limit of $550 per person."

Here's a look at all the swag SEC teams are getting for their bowl games:

Allstate Sugar Bowl
Capital One Bowl
AT&T Cotton Bowl
Outback Bowl
Chick-fil-A Bowl Gator Bowl
