"The Boss always loved college football. Except for the Yankees, it was his greatest passion," Yankees president Randy Levine said.
The Buckeyes will have a chance to play in "The House That George Built" starting in 2014.
On Tuesday, the Big Ten and Atlantic Coastal Conference announced that they’ve entered into a six-year agreement to play in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in the Bronx.
According to a press release, "the ACC will have a significant branding presence in Yankee Stadium, featuring a fixed sign along the third-base line and home plate rotating signage."
"The partnership between the ACC and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl makes sense on so many levels and we are extremely pleased that one of the league’s football teams will be showcased in this game annually," ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. "With our 15-member conference stretching along the entire Atlantic Coast, this will be a great opportunity for our fans and alums to connect in the media capital of world and with one of the most storied and successful franchises in sports."
And college football in Yankee Stadium may not stop with the Pinstripe Bowl. The Yankees would also like to host college football playoff games eventually, they announced Tuesday.
