The mission of the event is to increase inclusion.  "The Showdown" will feature members of Best Buddies, college students (Peer Buddies) and individuals with disabilities. Assistant football coach and offensive coordinator Christian Ozolins will serve as the game's referee and other coaches and players helped coach the two teams that were wearing orange and black shirts.
