This is a bit more palatable, considering Mercedes-Benz Stadium is less than a mile from Tech’s campus.Notre Dame likely likes this call, as well. The Fighting Irish have made it a habit to play big neutral site games at big venues like Mercedes-Benz almost every year. This won’t be neutral site—Georgia Tech has confirmed that it will control the home team allotment of tickets for these games—but I expect that ND will sell these much like their “Shamrock Series” games to the fan base.[Georgia Tech] a wide shot of this afternoon's saints-rams game on foxNEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – JANUARY 20: Jared Goff #16 of the Los Angeles Rams throws a pass against the New Orleans Saints during the first quarter in the NFC Championship game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 20, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
