The Boston Red Sox are reportedly looking to bring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team to Fenway Park in 2014. The UConn Huskies are being looked at as the opponent.

According to the Boston Globe, the ownership group of the Boston Red Sox is interested in bringing major college football to Fenway Park in 2014. Peter Abraham is reporting that John Henry would like to bring the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to Boston to play the UConn Huskies.

Fenway Park hasn't hosted a football game since 1968 when the Cincinnati Bengals played the the Patriots. In recent years the Red Sox home has hosted both NHL games and soccer friendlies between several top clubs from Europe. The stadium has also seen an increase in the number of concerts and other events it hosts.

The Red Sox would not be the first team to bring college football into their home in recent seasons. Both Yankee stadium and Wrigley Field have hosted college football recently.
