According to Brian Bennett, blogger for ESPN.com, Yankee Stadium will announce a new bowl game which it will host beginning in 2010. It will be dubbed the Yankee Bowl, and it will slot teams from the Big East and Big 12, with the possibility of Notre Dame.
The bowl will get the fifth choice of eligible Big East teams, and the seventh choice among the Big 12. If the Big 12 does not have seven eligible teams, Notre Dame can fill their slot, and face off against a Big East opponent. Typically, the Fighting Irish have been a substitute for Big East teams in bowl games, rather than its opponent.
