The Holiday Bowl is always one of the more memorable bowl games each year and that does not figure to change with the California Golden Bears and Texas Longhorns preparing for battle on December 28. While the next few weeks will be filled with insight into the matchup and breakdowns of each player, there is one aspect that every player and coach enjoys: the gifts.
In what will be a nice break from practice and hours of watching tape, the two teams will get various gifts from local venders in the Bay Area.
The big gift will be a trip to a Best Buy, where players will be given a gift card with an undisclosed amount to purchase a few items of their choice. In addition, the Bears and Longhorns will receive a Tourneau watch, jacket and fitted cap to commemorate the experience. And this of course does not include the ultimate prize, which would be the Holiday Bowl trophy.
Kickoff for the Holiday Bowl is set for 5 p.m. on December 28. It will be televised nationally on ESPN.
