The teams met 22 times at old Yankee Stadium, playing annually from 1925-46, except for 1930, and again in 1969 in the 100th anniversary of college football. Football was not played at old Yankee Stadium after September 1987, when Central State beat Grambling 37-21.
While the Yankees said Friday the field would run from first base to left field, Yankees chief operating officer Lonn Trost said the only direction it would fit would be from behind home plate to center field. In a mockup displayed at Monday's news conference, it appeared seats would be 30 yards from the sideline at midfield and about 20 yards at the 30-yard lines.
