Penn State Hockey Opener Against Army in Jeopardy



The debut of Penn State’s new $90 million hockey arena could be delayed due to the government shutdown.
 
Penn State is scheduled to start its season, and officially christen the Pegula Ice Arena against Army on October 11. But the Department of Defense has suspended all intercollegiate athletic competitions at the service academies due to the government shutdown, according to a statement from the Naval Academy.
 
Army canceled a soccer game Wednesday citing the Defense Department directive.
 
Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said the suspension is being reviewed by Pentagon lawyers to determine whether money used for the athletic activities is appropriated by Congress.
