AMHERST, N.Y. -- Dan LeFevour threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns to lead Central Michigan to a 20-13 win over Buffalo on Saturday.

The game was held up for 39 minutes while the crowd of 18,092 was evacuated with 5:48 left in the third quarter. Central Michigan was leading 20-10 after lightning was spotted around the stadium.
