EAST LANSING, MI (CBSMiami/AP) — The South Florida and Michigan State game had to be delayed due to bad weather.
The Spartans’ basketball coach went over to the student section during a delay before Saturday’s football game against South Florida and urged fans to leave the area because bad weather was on the way.
A message was posted on the scoreboard, and the seating bowl was almost empty except for a student section that was about half full.
Izzo said on a microphone that it wasn’t safe to stay.
Michigan State’s season opener last week was also delayed by bad weather.
Some fans remained near the field even after Izzo’s speech — but a downpour about 10 minutes later helped clear the place out.
