Football forges on

 

The football game between Air Force and San Diego State will be played tonight at Air Force Academy, Colo., despite the partial government shutdown. Officials at the academy announced on Wednesday the school has been advised that “all Air Force Academy intercollegiate athletics may resume immediately.” Last week, the Defense Department temporarily suspended sports competition at the service academies as a result of the budget impasse in Congress that led to the partial shutdown. But Air Force, Army and Navy were all allowed to play their football games because no government funds were used. – Associated Press
