The game got back underway just before 2 p.m. Follow live score updates here

Due to the threat of lightning in the area of East Lansing, the gameplay was postponed. Fans at Spartan Stadium were evacuated as the line of storms moved through the region.

Meanwhile, it’ll be cold with temperatures generally in the mid-40s. The rest of Saturday will be windy, and if there's a heavier shower crossing East Lansing, it could bring some graupel, or even big, wet snowflakes.

Local 4Caster Paul Gross will be at the game and will be watching the weather closely. He'll post updates on Twitter (@PGLocal4) when possible.

Here are some maps showing the expected timing:

Saturday’s sunrise is at 7:52 a.m., and Saturday’s sunset is at 6:44 p.m.

There will be gradual clearing Saturday night, with lows near freezing.
