Iowa State Students wait out the rain delay during the Iowa State vs South Dakota football game with a game of frisbee. 

Lightning has brought the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk game to a halt.

Twice in the first 20 minutes of game action lightning has struck within an eight-mile radius, prompting an automatic 30-minute delay. The delay clock re-starts after each lightning strike. 

In the first quarter, the game was delayed officially for 49 minutes, while the current delay began at 4:45 p.m.

Following the first delay, Iowa State scored a touchdown on a wide receiver pass trick play, with Deshaunte Jones finding La'Michael Pettway to put the Cyclones up 7-3.

Iowa State will have the ball at its own 20 with 13:24 left in the second quarter when play resumes.
