The 150th "Rivalry" at Yankee Stadium

It was one of the worst-kept secrets of the 2012 season. 

Even though it was unconfirmed for many months, people in the know heavily suspected that something big was on the horizon for "The Rivalry" for the upcoming 150th meeting between Lehigh and Lafayette.

In 2014, when "The Rivalry" celebrates its 130th birthday, the game will be played outside the state of Pennsylvania.

In two splashyannouncements before the 148th meeting between the two rivals right before Thanksgiving, Lafayette and Lehigh jointly announced that the 150th game - Lafayette's home game - will be contested at the new, 36,000 seat Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
