Would love to see this played in New York
TUSCALOOSA -- A future Alabama-Notre Dame football game, possibly at a neutral site, has been the subject of casual discussions, officials at both schools say.
The preliminary talk appears to be more than wishful thinking but far from becoming reality.
"Is it a deal we would like to see? Yes," Notre Dame Athletics Director Jack Swarbrick said Monday.
"Will we be able to? That's a lot less clear."
Notre Dame's contract with NBC and the Southeastern Conference's contracts with CBS and ESPN present obstacles. Notre Dame is committing to play seven home games, four road games and one game at a neutral site in future seasons. NBC owns the rights to the neutral-site games through the end of its contract, in 2015.
Alabama Athletics Director Mal Moore says 2012 would be the earliest a game against Notre Dame could be arranged.
Moore said Jacksonville, New Orleans and New York could be possible sites for a game against Notre Dame.
