Report: A possible UConn/ND game at Fenway?

The Boston Globe and The Day of New London are reporting that officials at both UConn and Notre Dame would be willing to agree to play a game at Fenway Park during the 2014 season.

The Globe story said that talks are in the early stages and that officials at UConn think the idea has merit. If the game does happen Notre Dame would have to agree to switch a home game and let the game be played in Boston. It would be the first football game played at Fenway Park since 1968.

UConn officials would not comment on the report citing university policy not to talk about non-conference games until the contract has been signed.

Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick called the report "inaccurate" in a statement.

“We have work to do on our future football schedules, given the announcement last week relative to our upcoming Atlantic Coast Conference relationship. However, media reports today that we will play Connecticut in Fenway Park in 2014 are inaccurate,” Swarbrick said in a statement
