Buffs eyeing football game at Yankee Stadium

KANSAS CITY, MO. – Colorado is in negotiations with CSTV to play a football game in Yankee Stadium, athletic director Mike Bohn said during the Big 12 spring meetings here today.

The year and opponent are uncertain, Bohn said. Colorado’s schedules are filled through 2013. However, Army appears a likely opponent. The Cadets, from nearby West Point, N.Y., will play the first game at the new Yankee Stadium Nov. 20 against Notre Dame.

“We visited a little bit,” Bohn said. “We’re looking to do it. But it’s pretty preliminary.”

Bohn said financial guarantees weren’t discussed but that money wasn’t the driving force for the Buffaloes.
