ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The start of the Minnesota-Michigan game was delayed for about an hour by severe weather.

Lightning strikes in the area ahead of Saturday's scheduled start pushed back kickoff.

The game was scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

About 60 miles away, No. 24 Michigan State beat No. 7 Penn State 27-24 in a game that was interrupted during the second quarter for nearly 3 ½ hours.
