Later this year on November 20 the new Yankee Stadium will play host to its first college football game when Notre Dame and Army continue their annual rivalry. It should be pretty cool for fans in New York to be able to see a college football game in the city, and it also serves as a chance for Notre Dame to expand its recruiting base into the city.
Which is something that a lot of other schools would like to do as well, so it's not that surprising to hear news today that there is another game currently in the works to be played at Yankee Stadium in the future. This one between Rutgers and Miami.
UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt dined with a group of school officials and John Mosely from the New York Yankees on Wednesday at Lidia's in Pittsburgh. Hocutt said "a deal could be imminent'' for the Hurricanes to play Rutgers in 2013 at Yankee Stadium. "It would be a fun matchup, wouldn't it?'' Hocutt said, referring to facing former UM defensive coordinator and current Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano. "I'd like to have a presence in New York every four or five years. It makes sense for us.''
Hocutt is currently in Pittsburgh for Miami's game with Pitt tonight and he'll be joined by members of the Yankees organization in the press box
