Imagine waking up in the morning and being able to turn on your Nintendo Wii and enjoy a game of Madden 08 — well the two college football teams playing in the BCS Championship game won’t have to.

If you are one of the many who tried to obtain a Nintendo Wii this holiday season, only to come up short, you may be surprised to hear that while Mark Neville, spokesman for the Holiday Bowl, stated that the consoles were not easy to find, he was able to obtain one for each player on the Ohio State Buckeyes and LSU Tigers team as a part of their BCS gift pack.

If you believe that Mark stood in line overnight, battling the cold winter weather in order to pick up the nearly 250 Wii consoles needed to supply both teams, I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

In addition to the Wii console, each player on both teams will also receive four Wii games, a baseball cap, a watch, and a fleece pullover, according to Sports Illustrated.

While the BCS has awarded players with the most coveted console of the season, other bowl players have received Best Buy gift cards as well as other electronic gadgets.
