Reports: UConn and Notre Dame may play at Fenway

Associated Press Published: September 18, 2012

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut and Notre Dame are reportedly in negotiations to play a football game at Fenway Park in Boston.

The Day of New London and the Boston Globe, both citing officials involved in the talks, said the game would be played in 2014, and would be considered a home game for the Fighting Irish.

UConn Athletic Director Warde Manuel did not immediately return an email seeking comment Tuesday morning.

Boston Red Sox officials said in March the team was interested in bringing football back to Fenway.

The park has hosted 41 football games in its 100-year history, but none since the New England Patriots beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 33-14, on Dec. 1, 1968.

In recent years, the baseball park also has played host to hockey games, soccer matches and concerts.
