Army is now slated to play its 3rd game in Yankee Stadium agsint Rutger, another against Notre Dame, which is also play a neutral-site game versus Wash St. in San Antonio. There have been rumors of a college football game in Wrigley Field (NW and or Illinois) swirling in Chicago sports radio. This along with the NHL’s Winter Classic seems to be the sports marketing rage.
I generally like this idea for the college game: exposure to a new fan base, new scenery, publicity, etc. At the same time, I would not want to see Michigan sacrifice a home game to play at Comerica or Ford Field. Some college stadiums/programs just have too much history and lore to not play every game at its home field.
With that being said, I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing UM play an away game at a neutral site. Northwestern v. Michigan at Soldier Field or Wrigley would be pretty neat. Wisconsin v. Minnesota in Lambeau Field. Boston College versus whomever at Fenway Park is another.
What teams/venues would make a good match up?
