I-A College Football
 
 
              === Army-Boston College game to go on as planned ===
 
 Chestnut  Hill,  MA (SportsNetwork.com)  -  Saturday's  college football  game
 between  Army and  Boston College at Alumni Stadium will be held as scheduled,
 the BC athletic department announced Thursday.
 
 The  contest, as  well  as Saturday's  clash  between Air  Force  and Navy  in
 Annapolis,  had been in danger of being postponed due to the recent government
 shutdown.
 
 "I'm  pleased  to  announce  we  will host  the  U.S.  Military  Academy  this
 Saturday,"  said  Boston College athletics  director Brad Bates. "I'm thrilled
 our students and those from the service academies will get to play their games
 this  weekend.  Thank you, fans, for  your patience and understanding the past
 couple  of days.  Also, thanks to Army  AD Boo Corrigan, who has been terrific
 through this process."
 
 Though  Navy  was forced  to suspend  several other intercollegiate activities
 because  of  the stalemate in  Washington, Saturday's  game with Air Force was
 allowed  to go  on  because it  received no  government  funding. The  academy
 announced the contest would be played on Wednesday.
