Postseason brings Big Ten bowl swag

One of the perks of going to a bowl is the gifts players receive. The Sports Business Daily recently chronicled what each bowl gives to participating players. Here’s a look at the swag that Big Ten players will receive at each game.

Don’t forget that we’ll be tracking the college football bowls throughout the postseason, with previews, updates and in-game trackers in our Big Ten Bowls section.

In case you’re wondering, events such as bowls can distribute participation awards worth a maximum value of $500, according to the NCAA manual.
