ESPN Events will host the 2022 Armed Forces Classic featuring perennial men’s college basketball powers Gonzaga and Michigan State on the flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln in the San Diego harbor on Veterans Day. The game will be televised Friday, Nov. 11 in primetime on ESPN.
The 2022 Armed Forces Classic will mark the second time the Spartans play in a game on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. In the 2011 Carrier Classic, Michigan State faced North Carolina on the USS Carl Vinson, also in San Diego harbor. That successful inaugural event included then-President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sitting courtside for the game among the service men and women.
The 2022 event will be held on the USS Abraham Lincoln and tickets will not be made available to the public for purchase.
