Athletics will resume at the Air Force Academy despite the ongoing shutdown.

The Academy released a statement Wednesday saying the following:

The U.S. Air Force Academy is awaiting written final Department of Defense guidance, however, we have been advised that all Air Force Academy intercollegiate athletics may resume immediately. We owe it to our cadet athletes and opponents to honor our commitments in this regard. Athletics is one of the pillars of character and leadership development at the Air Force Academy. No appropriated funds will be used to fund these programs.

This means Thursday night's football game versus San Diego State is back on.
