Utah-Michigan game delayed in 4th quarter because of severe weather; Utes lead 26-10

Michigan's game against Utah on Saturday is being delayed in the fourth quarter because of lightning strikes in the area. The Wolverines trail 26-10.

Play was halted with 7:51 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Utes in total control.

Michigan backup quarterback Shane Morris — who came on after Devin Gardner was ineffective — was intercepted by Tevin Carter, whose 59-yard return put the ball at the Michigan 17. Then fans were told to leave the seating bowl amid a downpour, and players headed toward the tunnel.
