Football in the Bronx. Yankee Stadium's football venue kicks off November 20 when Notre Dame and Army renew their old rivalry. This will be the 50th meeting between the two schools with Notre Dame leading the series, 37-8-1. The two schools met 21 times between 1925-46 at the old Yankee Stadium, where the Irish held a 14-5-3 advantage in the series.

New Yankee Stadium is a gem. A perfect place for more than baseball. Bowl games will soon return to New York too. Get ready for "Pinstripe Bowl" games. This contest, featuring teams from the Big East and Big 12, will mark the first NCAA football bowl game in the Bronx since the Gotham Bowl on Dec. 15, 1962, when the Nebraska Cornhuskers edged the Miami Hurricanes, 36-34, at the original Yankee Stadium.

Long overdue tradition returns to the Big Apple 48 years later. Hats off to New York and the Yankees hierarchy for winning over NCAA officials. A great national stage for regular season and bowl games. Notre Dame vs Army kickoff on Saturday will showcase Yankee Stadium's football capabilities while two long time foes go toe to toe. Yankee brass is certainly busy entertaining possibilities of extending their lineup. Old Yankee Stadium's hosted heavy weight boxing championships, The Pope, summer camps, rock stars, movie productions. Safe bet Yankee Stadium's doors will continue expanding their tradition rich ways. Another home run!
