The New Era Pinstripe Bowl matchup between the University of Notre Dame and Rutgers will be the only post-season college football game in which both programs each have a graduation rate of better than 85 percent, according to an annual survey.
Notre Dame, with a 94 percent rate, and Rutgers, at 85 percent, will meet Dec. 28 (Saturday) at Yankee Stadium. None of the other 34 bowl games features both teams with such high graduation rates for football student-athletes.
The survey of the academic programs among college football players was conducted by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports (TIDES) at the University of Central Florida.
