It's one thing to shut the government down and throw the country into chaos but quite another to start messing with college football.

However, the Capital Gazette is reporting Tuesday the political impasse in Washington could also shut down Saturday's government game between Air Force and Navy in Annapolis, Md.

"It's a possibility," Troy Garnhart, Air Force's associate athletic director, said.

It seems that upper-class cadets at Air Force are considered military personnel and could be restricted from travel this weekend.

The game is part of the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy series that features the football-playing service academy schools.
