USC, Nebraska to receive happy Holiday Bowl gifts

For the first time in program history, USC will play in the Holiday Bowl against Nebraska.

Happy Holiday Bowl, indeed.

There will be no hair dryers or backpacks this season.

USC players hit the bowl-game-gift jackpot with their invitation to the Holiday Bowl, where they'll receive a $445 gift card to Best Buy, a Fossil watch and a cap, according to Sports Business Daily.

In wish-list terms, here are a few items players can purchase: A 40-inch television, Beats headphones, an iPhone 6, or even a microwave and mini-fridge for their dorm room or apartment.

Bowls are allowed to gift up to $550 to 125 participants on each team.
