Aircraft carrier game nixed

The intriguing idea that surfaced last week, which was to match UNC and Air Force to be played on an aircraft carrier this fall, has been cancelled.

The U.S. Navy announced that it would not approve a proposed Veterans Day doubleheader next November that would have matched North Carolina and Air Force, along with Michigan State and Navy.

A statement released by the Department of the Navy read: "Based on aircraft carrier schedules and possible operational contingencies, it would not be appropriate to dedicate an aircraft carrier venue for this event.''
