WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. -- The Gophers game at Purdue is in a weather delay with 9:58 left in the fourth quarter because of thunderstorms and lightning in the area. Officials suspended play at 6:22 p.m. Eastern, just after J.D. Dellinger kicked a 19-yard field goal to give the Boilermakers a 16-14 lead.
The stands at Ross-Ade Stadium were evacuated, and fans funneled into adjacent Mackey Arena as sheets of rain fell.
