New Mexico Bowl Player Gifts

What will the Miners be taking home besides a trophy? A pretty sweet gift pack.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

One of the perks of a bowl game besides national attention, a chance to carry a trophy off the field, and the entire once in a lifetime experience of going to a bowl game is the gift packs the players receive apart of the bowl week.

The NCAA allows bowl reps to issue a gift pack worth up to $550 of gear, electronics, and corporate sponsored gifts.

Teams can also receive up to an additional $800 in gifts and goodies from the school, and conference as well.

Some bowls give gift suites, or shopping sprees, here is what the Miners will get from the New Mexico Bowl.

AudioSource Sound portable/mobile speaker; mobile phone charger;

The portable speaker comes in different colors, and is also a hands free mobile speaker.  Players can stream their music from their phones to the speaker, and also charge their phones. The bottom portion is made up of a suction cup that sticks to any surface, and its also water proof to take poolside in the summer months while bumping music with the football groupies!

The Miners will also get an Oakley hat and beanie to go along with their other Oakley gear, I figure they will have plenty of options to choose from.

Last but not least, Gildan throws in one of their signature stadium blankets with the New Mexico Bowl Logo to wrap up the gift package.

But that's not all.....

The New Mexico Bowl also offers a gift suite, so assuming the price total of the gift pack, there is some wiggle room to fill the allotted $550.   No word on what could be in the gift suite, but tune into players Twitter, and Instagram accounts for a look into their well deserved gifts.
