This year marks the third annual bowl game at Yankee Stadium. In 2010, the Syracuse Orange defeated the Kansas State Wildcats, 36-34, in the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. And last year, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights defeated the Iowa State Cyclones, 27-13. Prior to the inception of the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in 2010, the last college football bowl game had been played in the Bronx in 1962, when Nebraska edged Miami (Fla.), 36-34, in the Gotham Bowl at the original Yankee Stadium.
The New Era Pinstripe Bowl is a college football bowl game which brings together teams from the Big East and Big 12. However, the New Era Pinstripe Bowl is more than just a football game. The week of festivities will begin Tuesday, Dec. 25, with players, coaches and university staff taking part in a variety of events in the days leading up to the game, showcasing their respective universities to the New York metropolitan area. Special events, promotions and community outreach will take place throughout New York City during the week of the bowl game to once again create an unforgettable experience for fans, families, players and staffs of the two teams.
