You may have not thought of this, but one of the perks of any major event, be it a bowl game or the Oscars, is the much coveted “gift bag.”

So when the Hokies head down to sunny Miami for their Orange Bowl dinner dance with the Bearcats, what will be included in this all important pop culture party favor?

For starters $300 worth of Sony electronics. FedEx Orange Bowl officials have reserved a suite at each of the team hotels, the Westin Diplomat and Fontainebleau, for distribution and promotion of the giveaway items. On the night that each of the teams arrives, the players will be invited to the suite, handed a folio that not coincidentally features their school colors and is emblazoned with the bowl logo, and given what is basically a $300 credit line. Players can check off from a list in the folio the items that they want (up to $300 in total value), and the gifts will be delivered to the addresses of their choice.

Oh, and that’s not all. Get a complete look at what all the bowls are giving the players courtesy of Street & Smith.
