Army-UConn tickets on sale next week

Tickets for the Army-Connecticut football game scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday, Nov. 8, at Yankee Stadium will go on sale to the general public at http://www.yankees.com and http://www.ticketmaster.com at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 30.

Yankees full- and partial-season ticket licensees, Yankees Universe members, Yankees Group Leaders and Yankees.com subscribers may take part in a special pre-on-sale beginning Tuesday, April 29. Details can be found at http://www.yankees.com/football.

The game will mark Army’s third appearance at the current Stadium. West Point played in the venue’s inaugural college football game Nov. 20, 2010 against Notre Dame and Nov. 12, 2011 against Rutgers. Army’s game vs. Notre Dame in 2010 marked the 50th all-time meeting between the programs.

Army played 38 times at the original Stadium and had a combined mark of 14-19-5 against Air Force (1959), Columbia (1936), Illinois (1930, ’47), Michigan (1945, ’50), Navy (1930-31), Notre Dame (1925-29, ’31-46, ‘69), Oklahoma (1961), Pittsburgh (1962), Princeton (1942), Southern California (1951), Stanford (1928, ’48) and Syracuse (1960, ’64).

While playing at the original Yankee Stadium in the 1940s, Army also won back-to-back national titles in 1944 and ’45 and had two Heisman Trophy winners in Doc Blanchard (1945) and Glenn Davis (1946).

This will mark the sixth game between Army and UConn and the first since 2006. The Huskies, who will be making their first ever appearance in the Bronx, hold a 4-1 all-time edge over the Black Knights.
