Army and Navy are preparing to play their games on Saturday with no interruptions from the partial government shutdown.

The shutdown caused by the budget impasse in Congress caused the Defense Department to suspend athletics at the academies last week for a few days. However, the schools were able to show the Pentagon that no government funds were used for football games and all three academies played last Saturday.

This week began with some uncertainty, but with the schools optimistic. Air Force announced Wednesday its home game against San Diego State will be played Thursday night.

Spokesmen for Army and Navy say their teams are on track to play Saturday.

Army hosts Eastern Michigan. Navy is at Duke. The Midshipmen are schedule to leave for Durham, N.C., on Friday.
