The home portion of Navy’s two-game series with Ohio State will be played at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore to open the 2014 season. I’m sure everyone assumed this was going to happen all along, but now it has the hard candy coating of official-ness. Those of you hoping to see the game played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium are probably disappointed, but if you want to give up a Baltimore payday then you’re too hopelessly confused to have your opinion count for anything anyway. FedEx Field was apparently also considered, but thankfully ruled out since nobody likes looking at 30,000 empty seats.
Now that this is official, the next question is where to play Notre Dame that year. Will Navy play two games in Baltimore? Maybe FedEx Field is in the running for this game instead. Or perhaps the Notre Dame game will hit the road to somewhere like, oh I don’t know… Jacksonville? MAKE IT HAPPEN, CHET!
