NEW YORK (AP) - Notre Dame and Army have reportedly agreed to play the first football game at the new Yankee Stadium next year.

The Times Herald-Record, citing unidentified Army sources, said Friday that the Fighting Irish will play their traditional game against the military academy at the new ballpark.

The newspaper said Army will also play games there in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons. The Yankees scheduled a news conference for Monday to make a "major announcement regarding college football at
Yankee Stadium."

John Heisler, Notre Dame senior associate athletic director, said the school is talking to Army about playing at Yankee Stadium next season but there is no deal in place.
