Thanks to the rain and lightning, the Alabama-Missouri game was put on hold for almost 40 minutes in the middle of the second quarter.

Fans were told to evacuate the stadium during the delay, and many people headed home instead of sticking around for the rest of the game.

Missouri tight end Eric Waters was injured during the fourth quarter and taken off the field on a stretcher. Fans expressed their concern for Waters on social media.
