Yankee Bowl could arrive in 2010
The Big 12 and Big East could play a bowl game in Yankee Stadium, beginning in 2010.
The game would take place between Christmas and New Year’s, and feature the seventh-place Big 12 team and the third or fourth-place team in the Big East.
Bob Burda, the Big 12 spokesman, said he expected the league to sign an agreement with the Yankee Bowl. All that remains is approval from their board.
“It’s our intent to sign an agreement with them,” he said.
If the bowl game does materialize, it won’t be the first or only college football game hosted by the new Yankee Stadium.
Notre Dame will play Army in 2010. Army also has plans to travel to New York for a game against Rutgers in 2011, Air Force in 2012 and Boston College in 2014.
