SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Morale Entertainment Foundation says ESPN will televise the Carrier Classic game between Michigan State and North Carolina on the deck of an aircraft carrier in San Diego Bay on Veterans Day.
Mike Whalen of Morale Entertainment Foundation says ESPN also will televise a halftime show and postgame concert.
A basketball court with seating for approximately 7,000 fans will be built on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier for the rematch of the 2009 NCAA championship game, won by North Carolina. Organizers won't know until much closer to the Nov. 11 game which aircraft carrier will serve as host. Whalen has said it probably will be the USS Ronald Reagan or the USS Carl Vinson.
