On January 2, 2016 Penn State will take on Georgia in the TaxSlayer Bowl. The last time Penn State played in this particular bowl game was in 1976 against Notre Dame. At that time it was simply known as the Gator Bowl.
The TaxSlayer Bowl is one of the oldest bowl games. Its been around since 1946. Over the years its taken on different names. It started out as the Gator Bowl. From there it went on to be the Mazda Gator Bowl, Outback Gator Bowl, Toyota Gator Bowl, Konica Minolta Gator Bowl, Progressive Gator Bowl, and TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl. Now its just the TaxSlayer Bowl. They dropped the “Gator Bowl” name off the official title when they renegotiated a new contract in 2014.
There isn’t a whole lot of TaxSlayer Bowl merchandise. They have an official store, but most of the items don’t deal with the bowl game itself. What you’ll find are team specific stuff. I did see that they have 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl shirts. I’d like to see more bowl merchandise.
This is about as basic of a pin you’ll find. It has no dates and/or teams listed on it. I’m guessing it was made after 2013 though because of the name. They have been selling for $15.00.
