The Sports Business Journal came out with an interesting look at what players will be receiving as bowl gifts this season.
Some of the gifts include Oakley sunglasses, winter coats and gloves (yes...really), $420 Best Buy gift cards, and iPad mini's.
For a full list of what each bowl is giving out, follow this link.
Some of these gifts are perfect for college aged kids, while others can only be described as head scratchers. My top gifts (in no particular order) are:
- Oakley Dispatch II sunglasses - Beef O'Brady Bowl
- $420 gift certificate to Best Buy - Russel Athletic Sports Bowl
- 32 inch flat screen (that should be fun to pack on the way home) - Meineke Car Care of Texas Bowl

- iPad mini - Valero Alamo Bowl and Military Bowl
- Nike FuelBand - Kraft Bowl
-Jawbone Jambox - Beef O'Brady's Bowl
