TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Lightning caused play in the game between No. 10 Alabama and South Florida Saturday to be delayed for 55-minutes in the first half.
Officials cleared the field with 12:44 remaining in the first half with USF leading a 3-0 on a field goal set up by an Alabama fumble.
The first quarter was played under mostly sunny skies with the temperature in the low 90s. A rain storm began as the opening period ended and intensified when play resumed.
By the time teams were allowed to return to the field to begin a warmup period, the storm had moved through the area.
