Football at Fenway?

Fenway Park hasn't hosted a football game since the Johnson administration, but that's all set to change in 2015. Boston College and Notre Dame will play a game at the venerable ballpark, following the example of football games being played at Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium. Fenway's quite a bit smaller than your typical college football venue, but it's always interesting to see the typical formula shaken up a bit. We'd love to see what the Monster Seats end up going for at this one.

CFB: (14) Oklahoma at (22) Notre Dame

These perennial powers have been bumped down a bit, and for good reason. Oklahoma was hammered by Texas A&M in last season's Cotton Bowl, and it hasn't always looked inspired this season. Notre Dame played in the last BCS title game ... and got crushed by Alabama, before losing to Michigan in Week 2 this season (and not always looking inspired in its last two wins). Which team will take a step toward reaching those old heights?

(14) Notre Dame at (17) Michigan

Brian Kelly couldn't deny it, not even after initially saying this yearly contest was not "one of those historic, traditional Notre Dame rivalries." Two days after rocking the Upper Midwest with that comment, the Fighting Irish coach said what everyone else was thinking: "It's a great and historical rivalry that we'll be playing this Saturday." Unfortunately -- for some, at least -- it will end after next season, with the Irish opting to play more ACC teams. Who will claim this penultimate meeting?
