Western Michigan and Akron were scheduled to play a game on Saturday afternoon.
There was only one problem: Much of the field in Waldo Stadium was flooded because of heavy rains that continued for much of the day across all of Michigan.

As a result, and after several lightning delays, the Mid-American Conference contest was moved to Sunday afternoon.
The forecast isn't much better in the near future for Kalamazoo, which is under a flood warning until Sunday afternoon.
It has to be better, however, than on Saturday _ when much of the field was under water and staircases had turned into waterfalls.
The flooding into Waldo is.....severe pic.twitter.com/6uWxi7vbKi
