Pro-Notre Dame Crowd vs. Army at Yankee Stadium

There is a goalpost standing where home plate usually is and the crowd is wearing green instead of pinstripes, but there is no doubt that the place we are at is none other than Yankee Stadium. The South Bronx is once again the place to be for college football and what began in 1925 when Notre Dame took on Army for the first time here has come full circle.

This will be the first football game to be played at the new Yankee Stadium and the match-up is a good one, regardless of the status of both programs. Years ago, these were strong teams, but both actually have bowl aspirations this season. Army (6-4) is already bowl eligible and Notre Dame (5-5) can do the same with a victory.

There was a party-like atmosphere during the long pre-game, with irish alum such as Mike Golic being interviewed on the official Notre Dame television broadcast on an impromptu set located on the Irish sideline. The Yankee Clubhouse store was transformed into the Irish store for one night and attracted quite a crowd.

With the addition of the Pinstripe Bowl, Yankee Stadium is once again on the NCAA map. Judging by the way this place looks tonight, that was a wise choice. Some memorable results throughout the years:



Army – 27, Notre Dame – 0


Notre Dame – 7, Army – 0


Notre Dame – 12, Army – 6 (“Win one for the Gipper” game)


Army – 44, Notre Dame – 0


Army – 48, Notre Dame – 0


Notre Dame – 0, Army – 0


Notre Dame – 45, Army – 0
