Fenway Park has a long history of hosting football dating back to its opening in 1912. The ballpark was commonly transformed into the gridiron for high school and college football games throughout the early 20th Century and was home to the Boston Patriots from 1963-68. In November 2015, football returned to Fenway Park for the first time since 1968 when Notre Dame hosted Boston College. 2015 also featured a series of Massachusetts high school football rivalries playing traditional Thanksgiving games at Fenway Park.
