Iowa Football vs. Nevada
resumes after three delays … six hours after the game started
After a third weather delay, Iowa football's home bout with Nevada is expected to resume at 12:45 a.m. Sundays. The game starts at 6:40 p.m. Saturdays.
Perhaps this time things will be different.
Last tie, just when it seemed football was returning to Kinnick Stadium this evening, Iowa and Nevada have entered a third weather delay.
It came after Nevada ran one play and lined up for a long field-goal attempt upon resuming from the second weather delay, which lasted from 10:07 p.m. to just before midnight.
Lightning was again spotted within eight miles of the stadium, which is the magic distance to warrant a stoppage of play.
Played was previously stopped at 8:36 p.m. CT, after which an 80-minute delay followed. The Hawkeyes currently hold a 17-0 lead with 5:24 left in the third quarter.
Freshman Kaleb Johnson got the scoring started with a 40-yard TD run late in the first quarter.
Rain has been falling throughout the contest, but a delay wasn't necessary until the lightning crept closer to Kinnick Stadium.
Stay tuned for updates. When will Iowa's game resume from the rain delay? At this point, who knows. The delays have looked like this.
