Notre Dame's Blake Grupe kicks a 37-yard field goal in the first half of the 78th TaxSlayer Gator Bowl on Dec. 30, 2022.

Three weeks after the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl had its most successful game in a decade, the Gator Bowl Sports Board of Trustees and TaxSlayer announced an extension of their title sponsorship agreement for five more years, through the 2027 game.

TaxSlayer, an online tax filing platform based in Augusta, Ga., is the longest-running title sponsor of the nation's sixth-oldest bowl game. TaxSlayer became the Gator Bowl sponsor in 2012 and the agreement is the eighth-longest between a title sponsor and a bowl game.
