More Big Ten games coming to Yankee Stadium?

More college football: Dennis Dodd | Jeremy Fowler | Jon Solomon | Latest news

Showcasing its three East Coast members in Yankee Stadium makes too much sense for the Big Ten, which has a bowl agreement with the Pinstripe Bowl and has opened an office in Manhattan.

Would Penn State, Maryland and Rutgers play in The Bronx, possibly against each other? Big Ten Network president Mark Silverman seems intrigued by the idea.

The network plans to implement creating programming for new Big Ten markets such as New York and Washington, D.C.

"Like with Yankee Stadium -- would there be a case where Rutgers or Penn State or Maryland, would they want to move a game to an iconic stadium like that?" Silverman said. "You could bring in, for Rutgers, probably another 10 to 15,000 people there. Is that a game that makes sense to move there? Probably."

Rutgers already plays Army in 2015 in Yankee Stadium and is open to future games there.

Neutral-site games aren't going away because the payouts are too good and conferences can get a de facto home game without returning the favor in a home-and-home.
