BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - With the threat of lightning in the area, officials have tentatively pushed back the kickoff for Saturday night's game between No. 9 LSU and UAB until 7:37 Eastern time, a delay of about 35 minutes.
There was no rain at the time the decision was made, but players were told to stay off the field rather than warm up as they normally would.
A public address announcement also advised early arriving fans to leave their seats and wait out the weather in covered corridors, but many remained in their seats with no rain falling, particularly in the student section.
The game marked the home opener for LSU, which won its first game in Dallas a week earlier, 37-27 against TCU.
UAB opened with an overtime loss last weekend at Troy.
