UT-BYU now set for about 7:52 p.m. kick

Posted September 7th, 2013


Update 7:04 p.m.: The 50-minute countdown clock for the start of the game is running. Barring any other weather developments, especially any more lightning strikes nearby, the opening kickoff will come around 7:52 p.m.


The start of Longhorns’ game at Brigham Young, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., CDT, is going to be delayed.


BYU officials announced the temporary suspension of the game after a strong storm system passed over Lavell Edwards Stadium at about 5 p.m., CDT. Black clouds and gusty winds accompanied by sheets of rain inundated the stadium, followed by lightning.

BYU announced it will wait until the system clears the area, then launch a 55-minute countdown before kickoff.

So everything is on hold for now.
