GT and ND at Georgia Dome?
Tech-Notre Dame at the Georgia Dome? | Mr. College Football

[quote] Georgia Tech and Notre Dame at the Georgia Dome? Gary Stokan, the much traveled president of the Atlanta Sports Council, was here over the weekend talking to Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick. The subject? Trying to get the globetrotting Fighting Irish to consider Atlanta for one of their neutral site games.
Notre Dame likes to play neutral site games in order to help recruiting. The Irish are playing Navy at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. in 2010, Baylor in New Orleans in 2012, and Arizona State in Arlington, Tex., in 2013. Today the school will announce that it will play Army at the new Yankee Stadium in 2010.
Stokan made the pitch for Notre Dame to consider Atlanta for one of these trips. The word I got here is that the Irish might consider it for a chance to play a Georgia Tech or an Alabama.
“For what Notre Dame wants to do with its schedule, this just makes sense,” said Stokan [/QUOTE] .
I believe there's a TV problem playing SEC and ACC teams within their territories. SEC and ACC TV contracts require them to be shown on the league network not NBC. That's the reason for WSU (PAC 10 team) in Texas (Big 12 land) this year and for BU (Big 12) in New Orleans (SEC land). NBC can carry those games as there is no league/TV requirement with those teams and venues.
