Check Out All the Free Swag College Football Players Get For Playing in Bowl Games

Beats By Dre headphones? Amazon Kindle Fires? $400 Best Buy gift cards? College football players may not get paid, but they sure make out like bandits during the college football bowl season. As a "reward" for making it to a bowl, most bowl sponsors give players from each team a variety of gifts. For instance, playing in the Beef 'O'Brady's Bowl may seem like no big deal. Except when you consider that players get a Sony PlayStation 3, an Oakley Eyepatch 2, an Oakley backpack duffel, and a mini-helmet (okay, okay, so the mini-helmet isn't that exciting) for participating. The R+L Carriers Bowl gifts players a Samsung Galaxy tablet. And the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas hands out Fossil watches and 32-inch Toshiba flat-screen televisions. Not a bad little "payday" for playing in a bowl game. Not bad at all.
