Army_Football_2013 [1]WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has decided that football games and other sports will go on at the military service academies this weekend, and continue through the end of the month, despite the government shutdown. Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren says that Hagel will reassess the issue later this month if Congress has still not passed a budget to fund the federal government.

Last week the Pentagon allowed the academies to play their weekend games, but officials were not sure future games would go on.

The games are largely paid for with funds that come from outside sources and are not approved through Congress.
