Football fans who follow the Falcons will have one less game to watch this weekend, and maybe beyond that. The Air Force Academy announced in a news release the team has been sidelined by the stalemate over the budget. 

The release:

At this time, travel for all intercollegiate athletics is cancelled - this includes the Air Force-Navy game on Saturday, 5 Oct.

The Air Force Academy Falcons will attempt to play all home intercollegiate athletic contests but those may be cancelled, as well. Academy officials are working with Mountain West Conference officials, those teams the Falcons were scheduled to play and officials at The Department of the Air Force to make up as many games as possible.
