Gee, you know what the fan who has it all could really use? A school-specific candle, that's what. Well, Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin fans are in luck. Just in time for kickoff, Yankee Candle has released school-specific (scented) candles, and the collection includes the aforementioned four Big Ten schools.

Here are the links to purchase the Big Ten candles:

It's no misprint, these 22-ounce candles will run you $27.99. Hey, no one said school pride was cheap. But nothing will complete your tailgate or viewing party better than the scent coming out of this school logo jar. The candle does last 110-150 hours, so you're set for several years of games.

The scents, you ask? Here you go: Balsam and Cedar (Michigan State); MacIntosh (Ohio State and Wisconsin); Pumpkin Spice (Illinois).

No description can compete with the one for MacIntosh:

"So vividly real you can almost taste the unmistakable crunch."

If that doesn't make you throw the credit card down, nothing will.
