Syracuse-Notre Dame Game Confirmed For Yankee Stadium In '18
Notre Dame today confirmed that its '18 football game against Syracuse "will be played" at Yankee Stadium. It will mark the "ninth installment of the Shamrock Series -- a home game the Fighting Irish turn into a neutral-field matchup -- and the second to be played at Yankee Stadium." The first edition came in '10 against Army. Since it opened in '09, the new Yankee Stadium has hosted "three regular-season FBS games as well as the annual Pinstripe Bowl," first played in '10. Two more Rutgers regular-season games were "scheduled for there but weren’t played" (NBCSPORTS.com, 12/7).
