Tallying the Big 12 bowl swag

December, 23, 2013
For the players, the bowls aren’t just about the games. They’re about the bowl swag, too.

Each year, Sports Business Journal uncovers what exactly the players will be getting for making bowl games.

The NCAA allows each bowl to award up to $550 worth of gifts to 125 participants per school (a good day to be a walk-on). And as you can see here on the full list, the gift choices are pretty sweet, too.

Below is what the Big 12 players will be getting:

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (Dec. 28): Kansas State vs. Michigan
  • Gift suite (players pick out gifts from an in-person catalogue)
  • Fossil watch
  • Ogio Cube backpack
