Navy: Football game on, all other sports off

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Football is on at Navy this weekend, although all other varsity and club sports are suspended because of the government shutdown.

The Defense Department said Thursday everything was on hold through Sunday except for Saturday's football game against Air Force.

Navy and Air Force received the go-ahead to play because the game is not funded by the government. A sellout crowd is expected.

Army, meanwhile, says on its website it is trying to "gain more clarity" about its scheduled game at Boston College.
