The 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl may not be the biggest draw for television audiences on New Years Eve, but it features two programs with historic pasts. Both teams are looking to enter the offseason with a win after firing their head coach and many potential coaches and recruits will be following the game closely to see how things look for the near future.
One of the best aspects of bowl season is all of the gifts the players receive for playing in the game. Here is a complete list of all the items that will be taken home this year.
The Bruins and Illini will take home a Soundmatters Personal Audiophile loudspeaker, Fossil watch, cap and Timbuk2 custom messenger bag. The two programs will also receive various bowl game memorabilia. And this of course does not include the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl trophy, which would be the ultimate prize. Seriously, who wouldn't want that big thing in the trophy case?
Kickoff is set for December 31 at 12:30 from AT&T Park.
