                === Notre Dame to play Rutgers in Pinstripe Bowl ===
 
 South  Bend, IN  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Notre Dame  and Rutgers  have accepted
 invitations to play in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
 
 The  Fighting Irish  finished the season at  8-4 and will face 6-6 Rutgers out
 of the American Athletic Conference on Dec. 28 in the Bronx.
 
 It  will  be Notre Dame's  second appearance at  the new Yankee Stadium, which
 opened  in  2009. The Irish came  away with a 27-3  win over Army in the first
 football game played at the facility in 2010.
 
 "Quite  simply, we  are thrilled to bring  our football program to the New Era
 Pinstripe  Bowl,"  said Notre Dame  coach Brian  Kelly. "We were privileged to
 play in New York City and Yankee Stadium in 2010. The treatment our university
 received  from  the Steinbrenner family,  the New  York Yankees and the entire
 organization  was unlike  anything we've  experienced  in my  tenure at  Notre
 Dame."
 
 Notre  Dame will  play in a bowl game  for the fourth straight year and owns a
 15-17 postseason record. The Irish lost to Alabama in last year's BCS National
 Championship Game.
