Big 12…meet the Big Apple

The Huskers playing in the house that Jeter built? It could happen, but let’s hope not. The New York Yankees have announced that Yankee Stadium will host an annual college football bowl game between the Big 12 and the Big East Conferences.
They haven’t come up with a name yet, but the game would matchup the Big 12’s seventh selection (that’s why we hope it isn’t Nebraska…we’d like something a little higher than 7th) against the Big East’s third or fourth selection and will take place sometime between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, with the first game slated to be played at the conclusion of the 2010 college football regular season.
It marks the first NCAA football bowl game in the Bronx since the Gotham Bowl on December 15, 1962, when the Huskers edged Miami (Fla.), 36-34, at the original Yankee Stadium.
