First there was last year’s Quicken Loans Carrier Classic aboard Carl Vinson in San Diego Harbor, matching two historic college basketball programs, Michigan State and North Carolina. Then there is the slew of games scheduled atop decommissioned flattops for this season.
Now that playing atop a carrier in the elements is passé, Michigan State is moving farther afield. The Spartans will play perennial power UConn in November at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, MSU’s athletic director said Tuesday.
Mark Hollis did note that this game is awaiting final approval from DoD, and I’m guessing the brass won’t allow for a game played on an active runway.
