  Navy looking for new opponent as Lafayette College cancels Sept. 12 matchup This is the second Patriot League member to cancel a game vs. FBS opponent this month.It was confirmed early last month that the Notre Dame-Navy football game, originally scheduled for Dublin, Ireland, would instead be played in Annapolis.  Nearly a month to the day later, Navy announced that its Week 2 matchup with Lafayette College has been canceled.  According to the service academy, “[t]he NAAA was notified [Thursday] that Lafayette will not bring back its football team to campus with enough time to meet medical advisory guidelines established by the FBS.

Indiana hasn't been hit hard and Notre Dame has had promising results to early football team testing, but if 8,000 undergrads congregate there in a month, it's not hard to imagine how quickly that could change. Especially if any of those students are from out of state.

That means they’ll be eligible to participate in the conference championship game.
