LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Lightning has halted play between Indiana State and Louisville with 11:23 remaining in the first quarter, and players and spectators have been evacuated from Cardinal Stadium.
The Cardinals’ home opener in their stadium that just underwent a $63 million renovation began with heavy, steady rain Saturday night, which made visibility difficult and the football slippery for both schools. Spectators were advised of lightning in the vicinity and told to begin shelter before play was stopped a few minutes later with the field and stands being cleared.
Louisville (0-1) had just taken a 7-0 lead on Rodjay Burns’ 55-yard punt return for a touchdown with 12:04 left.
