Rain and thunderstorms plagued much of the Midwest on Saturday, affecting many of the college football games in the region.

However, by Saturday night, those storms had reached Knoxville, where Tennessee was attempting to host LSU at Neyland Stadium.

Prior to the game even starting, the Vols’ goalposts had been bent by the rain. Then, during the game, the rain and wind became so much that the power went out at the stadium, as you can see in the photos below:

Even coach Ed Orgeron of LSU weighed in, saying “it’s like playing football when you were a kid in the backyard,” in the video below:

It’s certainly football weather in Knoxville, but the rain might pass before the game is over if the Vanderbilt-Mizzou game in Nashville is any indication.

For now, though, the Tigers and Vols will have to deal with some intense conditions as they battle for a win in the SEC East-West crossover game.
