                                                                        between Navy and San Diego State,

                                                                        Qualcomm Stadium, was flooded and

                                                                        under about 10 inches of water. But after

                                                                        work crews spent all night pumping out

                                                                        1.5 million gallons of water, the field is

                                                                        now flood-free and expected to be ready

                                                                        in time for kickoff -- the bowl logo is

            already being painted on at midfield (eat your heart out, Metrodome).



            "The field looks beautiful," Binkowski said at about 7:45 a.m. Thursday. "All the water if off. They've

            actually started to paint the sponsor logo at midfield. That tells you how things are progressing.

            They're painting the field markings now. All the water is out. It's a miracle."



            While the field is no longer flooded, the effects of nearly a foot of water will still be felt Thursday

            night. Binkowski admitted as much, saying, "The field may be a little damp and slushy during the

            game because it's so absorbent down there ... You may see some guys slipping and sliding

            tonight ..."



            This all bodes well for the Midshipmen and their triple-option attack, a rushing offense that was

            fifth in the country this season (averaging 289 yards rushing per game).



            "It definitely makes it a sloppier, slower game," said Jay Kornegay, executive director of the Las

            Vegas Hilton's sports book. "The speed is going to be neutralized on both sides. (SDSU's

            Ronnie) Hillman is going to have a tougher time making his cuts and making people miss.
