We’re only one-plus quarter into the game and it’s now well past 7 p.m. E.T.Iowa State leads Iowa, 7-3, with a little more than 13 minutes to play in the second quarter. The game is still delayed and the storms don’t appear to be letting up.What’s going to happen if they can’t finish the game tonight? According to Iowa radio, there are two options:–Resume the game at a later date (both teams free 11/2)–Declare a no contestIt’ll be an interesting choice for the two athletic departments if we’re unable to re-start the game tonight.According to Iowa radio, both coaches & ADs basically have two options here if they don’t resume:–Resume the game at a later date (both teams free 11/2)–Declare a no contestHave to wonder if KF would really want to come back here in the heart of Big Ten season.— Chad Leistikow (@ChadLeistikow) September 14, 2019There always seems to be at least one or two games cancelled due to weather early in the college football season when storms are present.Hopefully that won’t be the case with Iowa-Iowa State, as this game was heavily anticipated, though you can’t risk playing during these storms.Stay tuned for more updates.last_img
