October 13, 2022

Grab your jersey and help us kick off tailgating season with delicious smoked sausages as we celebrate inspirational educators nationwide with Eckrich®, the official Smoked Sausage and Deli Meat sponsor of the College Football Playoff (CFP)! 

For the fourth consecutive year, Eckrich is going beyond the classroom to partner with CFP Extra Yard for Teachers Foundation to celebrate teachers across the country for their honest work and tireless commitment to ensure that their students have the tools to succeed.

Throughout the season, students, parents or even fellow colleagues are encouraged to visit and nominate a teacher that goes above and beyond to participate in the $1 Million Challenge. Selected teachers will attempt to make a 15-yard throw for their chance to win a $1 million donation to support classroom resource projects within their area. Below are the upcoming games and deadlines for nominations:

  • Penn State vs. Ohio State (Deadline: October 19)
  • University of Miami and Florida State (Deadline: October 26)
  • Clemson University vs. University of Miami (Deadline: November 9) 

So grab your Eckrich must-haves and join us in celebrating educators nationwide from the stadium parking lot or the comfort of your home!
