Battle on the Midway Moved to Sunday
Nov. 6, 2012
SAN DIEGO - Northrop Grumman Presents Battle on the Midway, which features No. 9 Syracuse and No. 20 San Diego State, has been moved to Sunday, Nov. 11. The game will remain on the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum with tip time set for 1 p.m. PT.
The season-opening game was moved due to the expected inclement weather in San Diego. The change does not affect television coverage as FOX Sports San Diego will broadcast the game with it being distributed nationally across additional FOX Sports platforms. Gates will open at 10 a.m. PT on Sunday.
As a result of the change, the San Diego Christian-SDSU home game, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. PT has been moved to Tuesday, Nov. 13, inside Viejas Arena. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. PT and FOX Sports San Diego will still carry the game live.
Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased through GoAztecs.com, Window E at Qualcomm Stadium, or by calling 619-283-7378.
The USS Midway Museum has agreed to be closed to the public on Veterans Day, in order to accommodate the mid-day game. The museum will reopen on Monday, November 12, and all veterans will be admitted free on that day.
