Football to play Holy Cross at Yankee Stadium next year

Like many seasons before, Fordham’s football squad will rival Holy Cross in 2016. 

The difference about next year’s game? It will be played at Yankee Stadium, both schools announced Wednesday night on Facebook and Twitter.

Joe DiBari, a Fordham spokesman, said more information would be released this summer. “We were only allowed to send out the social media blurbs,” he added. 

Fordham and Holy Cross are scheduled to play each other on Oct. 17 during the 2015 season, which will be played at Rose Hill.

The Rams defeated Holy Cross during their last three meetings, but lost in 2011, 41-21. (That was a bad season in general.)
