UNDATED - The games were chosen with care. Now football players are hoping their bowl gifts will soon be there.

TV's, watches, gift cards, even crocs -- sponsors rolled out a bevy of holiday cheer for Sooner state teams this bowl season.

The OSU Cowboys got corralled by Oregon in the Holiday Bowl. But an injured Zac Robinson and Dez Bryant will be recovering nicely in front of a dorm-sized 19" HDTV. Tack on a watch, sweatshirt and a Best Buy gift-card, they'll be feeling like a million bucks or at least like the $500 limit bowls are allowed to spend on players.

The Golden Hurricane has landed in Mobile, Alabama for the GMAC Bowl. Much like last season they'll be sporting some jewelry. The Conference USA West Champs will receive a bowl ring. After that, all that glitters is not gold. Tulsa walks away with luggage tags, a hat, watch and a football.

Much like the Sooners offense, they chose from a spread of Sony electronics. They call it a gifting suite where players could choose from up to $300 worth of Sony stuff. OU will also be styling with a new watch, hat, backpack and last, but not least, some championship Crocs.

‘Tis the season for bowl wins and gifts galore!
