Air Force vs. Navy Will Not Be Cancelled Due to Government Shutdown

Navy's defense of the prestigious Commander-in-Chief's Trophy may have to be put on hold this season, as the government shutdown has jeopardized the Midshipmen's college football clash against Air Force on Saturday.

The sold-out game is scheduled to be played in Annapolis, Md., at 11:30 a.m. ET, with CBS providing the national telecast. Postponement was a threat, according to Thomas O'Toole of USA Today and Alex Jackson and Bill Wagner of CapitalGazette.com. 

According to the Navy Twitter account on Wednesday, the Secretary of Defense will allow the game to be played.
