Notre Dame to host Army at Yankee Stadium
The New York Yankees announced today that Notre Dame will host Army at Yankee Stadium on Nov. 20, 2010, marking the 50th time the schools have played against one another in one of college football’s classic rivalries.
The two historic programs met 22 times at the original Yankee Stadium – the previous home of the New York Yankees – with the Irish holding a 14-5-3 record in games played from 1925-29, 1931-46, and 1969 (the 100th anniversary of college football). Overall, the two schools have played 49 times, with Notre Dame leading the matchup 37-8-4.
“The Yankees are proud to host two of the nation’s premier college football programs, and excited to bring college football to Yankee Stadium,” said Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “We look forward to carrying the great tradition of the Notre Dame-Army game from the original Stadium into our new home.”
