COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Play was suspended and the stands were evacuated due to lightning with No. 1 Alabama leading Missouri 27-0 midway through the second quarter.
The game was halted late Saturday afternoon after lightning appeared to strike near Faurot Field with 8:40 to go, right after a touchdown run by T.J. Yeldon capped by a leap for the pylon the last 5 yards or so was confirmed on replay.
The stands were virtually empty about 10 minutes after the game was suspended. SEC rules call for a mandatory 30-minute period without detecting lightning within a 6-mile radius followed by a 10-minute warmup before play can be resumed.
Alabama enjoyed a 311-40 advantage in total yards when the game was stopped.
