Lightning delays No. 25 Tennessee-Bowling Green

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) No. 25 Tennessee and Bowling Green have resumed play after an 80-minute delay for lightning in the middle of the third quarter.

Officials stopped play with 8:30 left in the quarter Saturday with Tennessee leading 42-27. The teams left the field at 5:40 p.m. local time and returned 70 minutes later for a brief, 10-minute warmup.

On a day with temperatures in the low 90s, a pop-up rain shower soaked fans already in the stands at Nissan Stadium before kickoff and a severe thunderstorm was nearby.

Lightning also delayed No. 9 Georgia’s 51-14 win over Louisiana-Monroe in the third quarter. When detected in the area again in the fourth quarter, officials called off that game with just under 10 minutes left.
