You’re supposed to be able to play football in any weather, but this is ridiculous. The pumps couldn’t get kicking into high gear, and the Western Michigan football team was forced to postpone its game against the Akron Zips.

The game was in a weather delay for several hours while the field attendants tried to figure out what to do. The flooding proved to be too much to overcome, and the game will have to be played at a later date.
So they won't be playing football at Western Michigan today. Game against Akron has been postponed and will be played at 1pm Sunday. pic.twitter.com/ap3M9AQH2w

After starting the season 0-2, the Broncos have reeled off four consecutive wins and are undefeated in conference play. Last week, they won a seven-overtime game against Buffalo.
With their game against Akron postponed, WMU now turns its attention to the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
Meanwhile, Akron travels back home and gears up to travel to Michigan again next week. They’ll draw the Toledo Rockets who are off to a surprising 4-1 start this season.
