Lightning at Spartan Stadium delays Michigan State-Penn State by 3.5 hours

G1ib61fsmrmtnslmnqir

But at around 1:15 p.m., the officials chose to call for a weather delay due to lightning in the area.

It was 1:15 p.m. when Penn State and Michigan State players were forced back into their locker rooms and fans were ordered to exit Spartan Stadium.

"Full 20-minute halftime is a football rule". That would make for a delay of almost three hours.

Officials originally said the game could resume at 4 p.m. EST.

Between 3 and 4 p.m., though, that line moved unexpectedly to the south and west, missing East Lansing and allowing the game to start almost an hour earlier than expected.

Game officials made the final decision on restarting the game, after reviewing not only weather forecasts but also field conditions. "We were approximating, because we don't give out times and people question what's going to go on, how can we plan". To tell the truth, the Spartans have overachieved, and, as a fan, I think we should be happy with where this team is now.

Penn State vs. Michigan State news:Lewerke is an above-average quarterback and ranks in the top half in the Big Ten in passing average, passing efficiency, and total offense.

No. 7 Penn State leads the No. 24 Spartans 14-7 with 7:58 left in the second quarter. Both sides have stuck to the pass with the teams combining for just 11 rushing yards thus far.
