What gifts will Notre Dame's players receive at Fiesta Bowl?

For the Notre Dame football team, Christmas comes twice.

Instead of Santa Claus, however, the Irish can thank the folks at the Battlefrog Fiesta Bowl for a couple extra gifts. Both Notre Dame and Ohio State's players will receive a "gift suite," a Fossil watch and an Ogio X-Fit backpack for participating in the game.

Sports Business Daily defines a gift suite as "private events in which game participants, and often bowl VIPs, are given an order form and allowed to select a gift, or gifts, up to a value that is predetermined by each specific bowl, not to exceed the NCAA limit of $550 per person."

How does the Fiesta Bowl gifts compare to the goodies at the other New Year's Six games?

Check it out.
