Notre Dame wants to play football at Yankee Stadium

notre-dame-yankee-stadium.jpgYankee Stadium hosted more than its fair share of historic football games, and now ideas of playing some college football at Yankee Stadium II are beginning to be formulated.

Jack Swarbrick, Notre Dame's athletic director, said the Yankees were open to having college football at the new Stadium, and he would like the Fighting Irish to be the first team to play there. Swarbrick stressed that no dates had been discussed.

"We've been in contact with Yankee Stadium and asked and inquired," Swarbrick said. "We will be discussing games with them, but we haven't entered into any substantive discussions."

Swarbick said the Irish's preferred opponent would be the Army Black Knights.

Notre Dame hasn't been a force for years now. Why not a team thats deserved a nationally televised game?

Kyle responds: I'd say it's all about tradition. Rest assured that money will be a factor.
