Touchdown for Teachers

This Bowl Season the College Football Playoff Foundation partnered with the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl on a new initiative, Touchdown for Teachers! For every touchdown scored in the 79th Annual TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, we were awarded $1,000 to give back to teachers in our community!

79th TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Touchdown Count = 9
That’s $9,000 we get to give back to local teachers!
