The second half of the Duke-Georgia Tech game is being delayed because of thunderstorms moving through the Atlanta area.

The teams were warming up for the kickoff when the skies suddenly darkened, prompting officials to send both teams back to the locker rooms.

The fans were told to evacuate Bobby Dodd Stadium until the storms passed.

Duke is leading No. 22 Georgia Tech 14-12.
