Football returns to Fenway Park on November 21, 2015, when Boston College will take on Notre Dame. This is the first time the pigskin flies through the air in Kenmore Square since 1968.
Professional football has a rich history in Boston. Believe it, or not, three professional franchises called Fenway Park home: the Redskins in the 1930s, the Boston Yanks, and the Boston Patriots. The Redskins shipped out of Boston in 1936 for Washington, D.C. The Boston Yanks played four seasons at America’s most beloved ballpark from 1944-1948. After this franchise folded, the final team to play on the outfield grass was the Boston Patriots. The last game played in 1968 was against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Pats would move to Foxboro in 1969.
