Charlotte, NC (WDRB) - Just one of the perks of playing in the Belk Bowl.
For playing in the game, all players from Louisville and Georgia received a $500 gift card and 20% off everything in the store.
Each team had a chance to shop at a local Belk this weekend in Charlotte.
Georgia went first Friday evening. Some Bulldogs pulled up to the store prepared. Belk officials say the players came with a list of things they wanted to purchase.
Louisville had their chance to shop Sunday evening. They pulled up the store around 5 and were attacking clothing racks like they would attack a 4-3 defense. Still, quarterback Reggie Bonnafon wished he would taken a page out of Georgia's shopping playbook.
"Honestly, I should have." said Bonnafon. "I should have come with a strategy."
But Bonnafon's lack of preparation didn't spoil his shopping experience. Bonnafon said he was determined to find something nice for his family and for himself.
"It's great. The Belk Bowl has been great so far. Myself and the team are excited to play in the game."
Louisville plays Georgia Tuesday night. Kickoff is at 6:30.
