Air Force-Navy football game is a go for this weekend
The Navy Athletics Twitter feed confirms the game is on despite the federal government shutdown.
The Department of Defense suspended intercollegiate athletics across all three service academies Tuesday in the wake of the government shutdown, putting the Falcons' and Midshipmen's Commander in Chief's Trophy game and Army's trip to Boston College in jeopardy. ESPN reported Wednesday, however, that academy officials had agreed on a plan to hold both games and that all that was needed was approval from the Secretary of Defense.
A decision on Army's game could be made on Thursday.
Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said one reason why the Falcons-Midshipmen game would be allowed to be played is because no government funds would be used to put on the game.
