The football game between Air Force and San Diego State will be played on Thursday night 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.'' The academy said in a release that no appropriated funds will be used to fund these programs. 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. San Diego State players and coaches were scheduled to leave Wednesday morning for Colorado Springs.
