Army and Notre Dame might play at Yankee Stadium in 2013 to commemorate the historic Notre Dame upset of Army a century earlier. Odds are that game would be awash in nostalgia, not bowl scouts.
Neither Notre Dame nor Army football is the same (for that matter, neither is Yankee Stadium). But in a sport that consumes tradition as its daily bread, the gathering of old rivals in old venues is marketing gold.
With that in mind, ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel has come up with a few other matches of old foes in old venues. Gentlemen, start your marketing.
