Air Force athletic events canceled due to government shutdown

Shutdown prompts Air Force Academy to cancel sports events	 	 	 			Air Force vs CSU

Affected Air Force games already include: men's and men's and women's basketball vs. Fresno State; men's hockey vs.

They'll get some extended time off after the university announced Saturday morning that all home and away intercollegiate sporting events have been canceled until a resolution is reached.

The Academy has said that it will "work to reschedule as many missed events as possible" once the shutdown has concluded, per a press release.

The Oklahoma men's gymnastic team was scheduled to open its 2018 season with a meet in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Saturday.


The Naval Academy Athletic Association is separate from the Naval Academy, with Army being set up the same way, according to USA Today Sports.

The government shutdown should not affect Oklahoma's February 24 vs. Navy, because the Naval Academy Athletic Association is separate from the United States Naval Academy.

Air Force is scheduled to play Utah State in Logan, Utah, on Wednesday, January 24.

The government shutdown began Saturday at midnight, after the U.S. Senate failed to reach an immigration deal.
