Georgetown Replaced By Syracuse For Aircraft Carrier Game Vs. San Diego State

Two weeks after being officially invited to play aboard the USS Midway Museum, formerly a working aircraft carrier and now a permanent museum in San Diego, Georgetown has been replaced by Syracuse, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The Orange will play SDSU on the deck of the USS Midway Museum in place of the Hoyas on November 9. The Union-Tribune cites a scheduling conflict as the reason why Georgetown did not officially accept the invitation:

A different Big East school, Georgetown, was initially invited to play SDSU, but the Hoyas could not get out of a previous engagement over the same weekend. Instead, they got an even bigger name, and one that almost never plays on the West Coast.

There's no official word from Georgetown as to what the prior scheduling conflict is.
