Yankee Stadium may host a bowl game

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Because we all are wondering what magic could come of a Kansas State-Connecticut football match, Yankee Stadium officials are in talks with the Big East and Big 12 conferences to host a bowl game there.

The Yankee Bowl would pit the seventh-place team from the Big 12 against the third- or fourth-place team from the Big East, according to the New York Times.

Officials from both conferences say they intend to make the deal happen.

There's no word yet on when the bowl game would be played, but there's definitely been a huge push to have football in the new stadium -- just as it was in the old one. Notre Dame is inked to play there next season, and Army has three games lined up there.

But another bowl game? As cool as it would be to schlep to NYC to watch a 6-win Mizzou team take on a sub-par Louisville, I just don't see it.
