The 2012 Pinstripe Bowl is just hours away. We’re sure you have so many questions. We’re here to help. (For an X’s and O’s breakdown, click through to Gabriel Baumgaertner’s game preview.)
• What’s all this, then? As we said in 2011: “Last year, football games at Yankee Stadium were a new and much be-hyped thing. This year it’s just a field mashed into a baseball diamond, hype not included. But to be fair, as football games in baseball diamonds go, this still beats that infamously cramped Northwestern-Illinois game at Wrigley Field, correct? Correct.”
• Where will this game be played? Yankee Stadium, which we’re told is in New York and houses some sort of baseball team when it is not 20 degrees outside.
• When is it on television? Coverage begins at 3:15 p.m. ET on ESPN, with streaming viewing available on WatchESPN, and will feature Chris Fowler, Jesse Palmer and Tom Rinaldi. We missed you, Chris Fowler. Never leave us again. Enjoy him while you can; this is the only postseason play-by-play assignment currently listed for Fowler.
