At this rate the late-night Iowa vs. Nevada game may never end. 

Iowa vs. Nevada is in another weather delay. There's lightning near Kinnick Stadium. Players and fans have taken shelter for safety reasons. 

It's going to be a late night in Iowa. 

"UPDATE We're in another lightning delay. We'll provide updates as we have them," the Hawkeyes announced.

Here's a pretty incredible shot of one of the lightning strikes that struck near Kinnick this evening. 

"Fans evacuate Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City as a bolt of lightning flashes overhead after the Iowa vs. Nevada game was suspended due to weather," said Bryon Houlgrave.

It's highly unlikely Iowa agrees to a no contest and there's no way Nevada forfeits. That means this is going to be a late night. 

"I doubt Iowa will agree to a no contest, and I doubt Nevada will agree to a forfeit. So this could be a late night," said John Steppe.

When tonight's game resumes, Iowa has a 17-0 lead.
