DENVER -- The game between rivals Colorado and Colorado State was delayed 28 minutes Saturday night due to lightning.

The delay came with 3:11 left in the third quarter, shortly after Colorado took a 35-14 lead on an 82-yard touchdown pass from Joel Klatt to Derek McCoy.

Klatt's pass was in the air when lightning struck just outside the stadium. McCoy ran it in from there and the officials called for the delay after the extra point.
