MORE TO COME? In Ireland, Kelly & Blake cited sources as saying that a "'five-year deal' was being put in place" to host other college football games. Those games would be held in '16 and '18 with Notre Dame and Alabama "thought to be amongst those interested in playing here." Notre Dame played Navy in Dublin's Aviva Stadium last year. Croke Park has been mentioned as a possible site for a new bowl game, but it is believed the venue is "more likely to attract regular season games than end-of-season showcases" (THESCORE.ie, 7/9).
