DENVER — Lightning in the Denver area delayed the start of the Rocky Mountain Showdown, which was played at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.
Kickoff was at 8:47 p.m. It was initially scheduled for 8 p.m.
Fans at the game were asked to take shelter in covered concourse areas until the storm passed.
The Colorado Rockies were also briefly in a lightning delay, a tweet from the team says. They have since resumed play.
