Crazy weather across the country has caused delays and some cancellations in a number of football games today. Iowa State vs. South Dakota State got started tonight, but now, it has been cancelled.
Each team got one drive in before the delay.
South Dakota State was forced to punt after a five-play, 14 yard drive.
Iowa State made its way down the field quickly. Kyle Kempt and company picked up 83 yards in just five plays, capped by a 55-yard pass to Deshaunte Jones for a score.
Connor Assalley knocked in the extra point to make it 7-0. That was the last play we got in the game.
According to Iowa State writer Paul Clark, the game has been cancelled for tonight.

The two teams’ bye weeks don’t line up. Iowa State is off on Oct. 20, while South Dakota State has its bye on Sept. 22.
Based on the Iowa State tweet, it doesn’t sound like the teams are considering picking things up tomorrow, though that may be the best chance to do it.
Iowa State was one of the surprises of college football last season. They should be good enough to pick up bowl eligiblity without this game, but if they’re floating on the 5/6 win bubble, this could loom large.
