OSU vs. LSU.
Looks like Nintendo will be the winner.
NCAA guidelines dealing with amateurism state that a bowl can spend up to $500 per team member.
Each school can also give merchandise worth up to $350 per player.
The Buckeyes and Tigers will receive a Nintendo Wii video-game system.
The Holiday Bowl in San Diego will also give away the Wii.
The Alamo Bowl in San Antonio is yet anot bowl with the Wii in its gift package.
The Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla., is giving a Sony digital camera.
The participants in the Rose Bowl, Illinois and USC, will receive a Sony Bravia home-theater system.
The Sugar Bowl is giving the players from Hawaii and Georgia a Sony digital camcorder.
Looks to me like it is Japanese electronics makers, Sony and Nintendo that is cleaning up with the bowl games.
