The Sports Business Daily has done an incredible job of compiling a list of what each player who plays in a bowl game will receive as a gift and we are pleased to share it with you.  I’m a little torn as to which Bowl Game has the best gifts, but you can stick me in a gifting suite any day and I’d be happy.   Also, a Chick-fil-A gift card doesn’t sound too shabby to me.   2012 Bowl gifts to participants Gildan New Mexico Sat., Dec. 15, 1 p.m. (ESPN), Albuquerque, N.M.
