Red Sox-Yankee Battle Moves On To The College Gridiron

They have been at each other's throats since the American League was formed in 1901—that's 116 years of feuding. However, most of the time they have 'squared off' on the diamond. Now, the battlefield has moved to college football. Reportedly, both the Red Sox and Yankees have submitted bids to host the annual Army-Navy football classic at their respective stadiums. Both franchises have a recent history of hosting college football games—so the track record of success is there for both. Historically, the 117 Army-Navy tilts have been in either Pennsylvania or Maryland—so shifting to Fenway Park or The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street would be a big move. Interestingly, Gillette Stadium and the New England Patriots are also in the mix. Stay tuned!
