Just as Notre Dame's game with USF was building to an exciting conclusion, another weather delay was called. Everyone is evacuating the field and the stands. However, this is a proactive move by officials. A storm cell is approaching South Bend, IN, and it promises to bring heavy rains and wind. The public address announcer informed everyone that this delay is expected to last 30 minutes.
After Notre Dame scored, the USF Bulls were forced to put in the following drive. The Fighting Irish took over at their own nine-yard line. Tommy Rees picked up four yards on a run, but that was the last play before the teams left the field.
South Florida head coach Skip Holtz will be ready for the final 4:21 of play, looking to beat his alma mater. His Bulls lead, 23-13.
