College Football comes to Ireland

Well now, look who's coming to Ireland!

Navy - Notre Dame to play in Ireland
The legendary Navy - Notre Dame football series got a 10-year extension this week and - as part of the new deal - the teams agreed to face off in Dublin, Ireland in 2012. Navy & Notre Dame last played in Dublin in 1996, a game the Irish won 54-27. The 2012 Dublin game will be a "home" game for Navy.

The attendance at the 1996 game was excellent, over 38,000, and this time it could be even higher with an increase in interest in American Football thanks to the Irish American Football League and the almost blanket coverage by Sky Sports.

''Mom, Dad, I'm going to Dublin!!''
