Army and Notre Dame will play the first college football game at the new Yankee Stadium

The first Pinstripe Bowl will be played at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 30 and will be televised by ESPN. The game will include the No. 3 team in the Big East and the No. 6 school in the Big 12, excluding Bowl Championship Series participants. “I think no matter what the sport, every kid who grows up wants to play at Yankee Stadium,” Yankees president Randy Levine said Tuesday. If the bowl had been played last season, the Yankees said Rutgers and Texas A&M would have been the participants. If one of the conferences cannot fill its bowl slot, Notre Dame could be considered. “It does give us instant credibility and instant recognition,”Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said.  New Era Cap Co. Inc., known primarily as the supplier of major league caps, agreed to a four-year deal to be the title sponsor in its most notable venture outside baseball. . The first football game at the new $1.5 billion stadium will be Nov. 20, when Notre Dame plays Army. –Associated Press
