NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - Instead of the strains of “New York, New York,” fans at Yankee Stadium will hear a different tune on Saturday.

WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reports

They’ll hear the Notre Dame fight song.

In what is a classic college football match-up, Notre Dame is playing Army in the Bronx Major League Baseball venue.

How do you fit a football field within a baseball stadium?

“It fits like a glove,” New York Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell. “It looks as if the stadium is built around the football field.”

Trost says the game is almost sold out, with more than 50,000 tickets sold.

The game will be the first football game at the current Yankee Stadium.
