This is a strange trend developing in sports this season. There have been several game delayed by ligthening to start the 2013 football season.
- Last week the Spartans experienced a delay during there game against Western Michigan because of severe weather and lightening.
- The opening game between North and South Carolina was delayed in the fourth quarter becuase of a lightening storm.
- On Thursday, the opening game of the NFL Season between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens was also delayed because of lightening.
Players should be returning to the field shortly and after a short warm-up period the game should resume.
