Double Coverage Football:
Notre Dame and UConn agreed to a home and home series years ago as part of the Irish's half-assed attempt to look like a member of the Big East, but the UConn game got cut when the Huskies refused to play it at Gillette Stadium or the Meadowlands to appease Notre Dame. The "series" ended up being a solitary trip to South Bend for UConn, and a 33-30 OT win for the Huskies.
After a couple years and a few more rounds of negotiations, the Notre Dame trip to New England is close to being back on schedule, with one new wrinkle: the game will be played at Fenway Park, which hasn't hosted football since the Patriots moved out in 1968, and will be a home game for the Irish.
Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick wouldn't confirm the negotiations were even taking place, but two sources involved in the talks told CBS that a 2014 meeting on Yawkey Way is coming.
