WMU-Akron moved to Sunday due to flooded field

  The conditions were less than ideal for Saturday's matchup between the Broncos and the Zips.

KALAMAZOO, Mich.  –  Saturday's Western Michigan football game against Akron has been postponed to 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 15 due to heavy rain and lightning in the Kalamazoo area.

Multiple lightning delays pushed back the game time as heavy rain continued to hit the Kalamazoo area. Flooding in the area along with standing water on the playing surface forced the postponement.

After discussions with the athletic directors from Western Michigan, Akron and officials from the Mid-American Conference, it was decided that the game be moved to Sunday.
