Fenway Park transforms into football field for three games

  Fenway Park will first host Brown vs. Dartmouth on Nov. 10.

America's oldest Major League ballpark has a new look to it. Inside the Pesky and Fisk foul poles with the Green Monster as a backdrop, hash marks and a pair of field goal posts now stand in place where the Boston Red Sox have called home since 1912.

As part of the Gridiron Series, three college football games will be played at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts over the coming weeks that will feature six New England schools; three FBS teams and three FCS teams. In the first matchup, Brown faces Dartmouth on Friday, Nov. 10 in a historic Ivy league rivalry that's older than Fenway itself. On the following day, Saturday, Nov. 11, Massachusetts squares off against Maine in their second meeting since the Minutemen moved up to the FBS in 2012. Boston College will take on Connecticut the following weekend, Nov. 18, to conclude the trio of games.

Fenway's last football game was back in 2015 when the Golden Eagles hosted Notre Dame, a 19-16 Irish victory, before a sellout crowd of 38,686.

“There’s enough interest from college and high school teams to do this every year. That would be fantastic,” Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy told the Boston Globe on Jan. 13, “We’ll see how it develops but we’d like to keep it going.”
