AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - The game between No. 22 San Diego State and Air Force has resumed after an 88-minute delay due to lightning in the second quarter.

The teams kicked off amid a steady rain Saturday and it only got worse before officials sent the teams to the locker rooms with 7:56 remaining in the first half. Air Force led 9-0.

Both teams agreed to skip a break for halftime.

Air Force announced the attendance at 27,575, but there was hardly anyone in the seats after the break.

The last time there was a weather delay at Falcon Stadium was 1993 against the Aztecs.
