EAST LANSING, Mich. (NBC) -- Mother Nature is at it again today. After about 10 minutes had been played in the Michigan-Michigan State game in East Lansing, a lightning delay went into effect as lightning strikes approached Spartan Stadium.
The delay happened in the middle of Michigan’s second offense series of the first quarter with no score in the game. Michigan was preparing for a 2nd and 6 situation as the Wolverines were approaching midfield. In addition to teams having to leave the playing field, all fans have been asked to leave the stadium for their own safety concerns.
Every time lightning strikes in the area, the game reset clock goes back to 30 minutes. So buckle in and get comfortable. Who knows how long we will be sitting around waiting for this game to resume.
Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Wisconsin and Illinois are playing in the snow.
