SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Poinsettia Bowl’s executive director says the game between Navy and San Diego State will go on as scheduled Thursday night even though part of the field at Qualcomm Stadium was under water some 24 hours before kickoff.

Bruce Binkowski says the stadium’s grounds crew is working around the clock to pump out the water from several days of heavy rain. A large portion of the parking lot has flooded as well, which could cause problems for the expected crowd of 51,000.

It rained so hard Tuesday that Navy and SDSU practiced in hotel ballrooms. SDSU held its Wednesday walkthrough on campus while Navy went to a nearby high school with a turf field.
