Gonzaga and Michigan State are in advanced discussions to play a neutral site game on an aircraft carrier in San Diego on Veterans Day (Nov. 11th), multiple sources told FanDuel.

There is no timetable on an official announcement.

There are still several logistics that need to be worked out due to the military, but both Gonzaga and Michigan State are both currently moving forward with the hope that the game will happen, a separate source told FanDuel.

This is the latest of several games that have been played in a military setting, most of which occurred prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gonzaga is currently ranked second in ROTHSTEIN 45 while Michigan State checks in at 35.
