Fighting Irish Athletics | September 20, 2016
Football teams from Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, Oregon, Florida State, Michigan State and Oklahoma have spent the first two seasons stretching for that extra yard in the College Football Playoff semifinals and title games.
Meanwhile colleges from around the country--including the University of Notre Dame--again are partnering with the CFP Foundation to gain that extra yard in the classroom as part of the CFP Extra Yard for Teachers initiative.
Following record-breaking fundraising in 2015 the Notre Dame athletics department for the second consecutive year is partnering with the CFP Foundation to generate awareness of and participation in the 2016 EYFT program on campus and throughout the Notre Dame community. The University's participation in the program features the unique ability to assist the Alliance for Catholic Education program based at Notre Dame.
