PROVO, Utah (AP) - The start of the game between No. 15 Texas and BYU was delayed by lightning.
The kickoff was scheduled for 5 p.m. MT before a strong storm moved into the area, complete with a whipping wind and pounding rain. No new time for kickoff was announced.
BYU players attempted to take the field for special teams work, but quickly retreated back into the locker room. The rain came down so fast that a giant puddle formed in the corner of the north end zone.
Later, lightning flashes began appearing near the stadium along with claps of thunder. Fans were told to leave the stadium.
Last week, BYU had its season opener in Virginia delayed for more than two hours by weather.
