I found this (a Rutgers article December 4th) ---
One of the greatest benefits of earning a trip to a bowl game is the additional practices afforded to a team. And contrary to popular belief, bowl practices aren't capped at 15.
"(It's) a common misconception that's been around for years," NCAA spokesman Christopher Radford said. "There is no specific limit on the number of practices a team may hold while preparing for a bowl game, but standard NCAA rules apply for participation in practice or other athletically related activities. Same as the regular season, these rules limit practice and other athletic activities to a maximum of four hours per day and 20 hours per week."
The myth is likely tied to the rules for spring practice, as teams are limited to 15 practice sessions in the spring. With no limit on the amount of practices, there's added benefit to playing in a bowl later in the calendar. [By Dan Duggan | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
