The Super Bowl is the most-watched program on TV each year. 

That's a lot at stake for one Franklin College graduate.

Travis Braun produced a commercial which is currently in the top 3 for the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl challenge. If his commercial wins, it will air during one of the commercial breaks for the big game, and Braun -- as well as others on the commercial's staff -- will get a million dollars.

The commercial Braun produced shows three dogs trying to get into a supermarket to get some Doritos. They use distractions and disguises to get to the chips.

Braun is originally from Texas and lives in L.A. He was a journalism major at Franklin College and graduated in 2010. The director of the ad is Jacob Chase.

If Braun's commercial wins, he won't be the only Franklin College graduate affiliated with Doritos. The person credited with creating the Doritos chip is a Franklin College graduate, Arch West. He was from Indianapolis.
