Maryland's game against Bowling Green was suspended because of inclement weather during halftime with the Terps leading the Falcons, 13-6.

Late in the first half, an announcement was made at Byrd Stadium that lightning was within 15 miles of the stadium. Then, at halftime, it was announced, "Inclement weather, including lightning, is within 10 miles. The game is suspended until the weather passes. Please evacuate the stadium in a clam and orderly fashion."

The game was scheduled to resume at 2:38 p.m.

Maryland leads Bowling Green thanks to Will Likely's 85-yard punt return for a touchdown at the end of the first quarter. It was Likely's fourth career touchdown return and comes after he set the Big Ten record for punt return yards in a game a week ago against Richmond. The Maryland defense has stopped Bowling Green twice on fourth downs deep in Terps territory and has also benefited from a missed field goal.

Quarterback Perry Hills is 7-for-13 for 66 yards and has rushed for 82 yards on six carries.
