Isn't this just kind of "priming the pump" and building excitement with the expectation to flow back to campuses once things catch on a bit.

Ideally. Maybe they'll return this with a game in Nationals Park or Camden Yards or better yet an actual football stadium like M&T Bank.

I personally hate this idea since Yankee Stadium isn't even all that good for baseball. The Yankees spent far more than the Mets did and Citi Field is night and day nicer. Citi Field feels like a really great ballpark. Yankee Stadium just doesn't have any real character. That being said, Yankee Stadium has horrible sightlines for football, it seems to be a bit better for soccer thanks to a wider playing field than North American football.

I saw they changed it yesterday. That's a really tough break for the schools and fans that were going to attend.

Not really. I don't think there were many Rutgers fans excited about going to Yankee Stadium to watch football, though I do know one who was gonna take advantage of the situation.

Moving the game, and the pre-game wrestling match, back to campus is much better for fans.

Rutgers to host Maryland at Yankee Stadium in 2017
My friends from my graduating class always have a weekend together; Friday golf, Saturday game and revisiting our old watering holes. This year our mutual date was 11/4/17. Thank you Todd Frazier for getting the Yankees so deep into the ALCS that the game was moved back to Rutgers! Our tailgate is back on!

That's too bad. It's just a little extra juice to give events that big game feeling.

I'm perfectly OK with schools doing things like this. I know the Wisconsin/LSU game at Lambeau went over really well with fans from both sides. Just makes it feel special.

not really... Yankee Stadium is terrible for football and annoying for NJ Rutgers fans to get to due to having to go through public transportation or the horrible tunnel/bridge traffic.
