Gophers-Michigan game now starting 7:30 pm Central

Michigan State-Penn State game delayed by lightning

Saturday's match-up between Michigan State and Penn State is now in a lightning delay.

Michigan State moved the ball to the Penn State 37, but Brian Lewerke threw an incomplete pass on third down.

The Nittany Lions still plan to plead their case to the College Football Playoff committee, and a big win over the Spartans could start the momentum shift to recover from last week's one-point loss to Ohio State.

Prosecutors begin appeal against Pistorius sentence
Judge Thokozile Masipa cited a number of mitigating factors in her reasoning behind giving the 30-year-old a six-year sentence. The six-time Paralympic champion was not present at today's appeal hearing in front of the five-judge-panel.

On first down, Lewerke made a pair of play-action fakes before connecting on a 33-yard touchdown pass to Felton Davis, who made a full-extension dive into the end zone to tie the game at 14-14 with 3:54 left in the second quarter. Saquon Barkley was held to 63 yards on 14 carries. DaeSean Hamilton caught seven passes for 112 yards and a touchdown for Penn State (7-2, 4-2), which has lost two straight. The Spartans tied the score on a 32-yard field goal by Matt Coghlin with 10:56 left in the fourth quarter.

McSorley had Thompkins open on a slant, but the ball went through the wideout's hands and put possession back in favor of the Spartans. When they came back at approximately 4:30 p.m. local time, the stands were mostly bare because fans departed during the delay. The Spartans took over and then mounted the game-winning drive. They travel to Columbus next weekend for a game against Ohio State, the victor of which will slip into the driver's seat of the Big Ten East race as the championship game in Indianapolis grows larger on the horizon. And when the teams finally returned to the field, Michigan State seemed to take control.

Seventh-rated Penn State entered the game as a 9-point favorite after its first loss of the season, 39-38 at Ohio State a week ago.
