Michigan football stadium cleared due to lightning, game ended
DETROIT (Reuters) - The University of Michigan's mammoth football stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, was cleared on Saturday during its season opening game with Western Michigan due to lightning strikes in the area, a spokeswoman said.
"The seating bowl has been evacuated," university spokeswoman Diane Brown said by telephone.
Michigan was leading Western Michigan 34-10 with 1:27 left in the third quarter when play was suspended. The schools later agreed to call the game as a final. The announced attendance was 110,506.
