    A new bowl game at yankee stadium?

    Discussions are brewing between the NCAA and high-ranking New York Yankees officials about the possibility of establishing a postseason bowl game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Daily News reports.
    While both parties have decided they would like the inaugural game to be played in 2011, other details must still be settled, such as agreeing on a date for the game to be played and getting the minimum $2.5 million guarantee the NCAA requires for the participating schools.
    News of talks regarding a bowl game comes on the heels of the announcement that Notre Dame and Army will play at the new stadium in 2010

    Gee another bowl game I wonder what conferences will play in this if it happens

    While the city would be fun, I don't see going to a cold-weather outdoor stadium as a very desirable bowl game locale.

    I'm guessing this game is going to be between the PAC 10 and the SEC....

    No kidding. Which conferences play in the International or Motor City Bowls? I gotta think those schools would be more interested in New York than Toronto or Detroit.

    The motor city bowl is at least indoors. It's one thing to have the bowl game in a cold climate, it's another to have to sit through that cold climate during the game.

    good point, I guess I was thinking of it more from the using bowl games as an excuse for a vacation stand point.

    NEW YORK -- A bowl game will be played at Yankee Stadium starting in 2010.
    The New York Yankees have scheduled a news conference Wednesday to announce the details. The game is expected to match teams from the Big East and Big 12 conferences.
    The Yankees have already signed a deal with Army for the service academy to play four games over the next five seasons at the new $1.5 billion dollar stadium, starting next year against Notre Dame.

    At this point, I'd go to a bowl game anywhere except Alaska.

    I would definitely go to a bowl game in NYC, even in late December. Can you imagine the packages? Bowl game + NYE in NYC?
