ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Stadium has been evacuated.

Fans were told to leave their seats Saturday in the third quarter against Western Michigan with the Wolverines leading 34-10.

It is the third stadium to be cleared Saturday as a series of storms made their way through the Midwest. Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind., was evacuated at halftime against South Florida, and Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa, also was cleared during the Hawkeyes 34-7 win over Tennessee Tech.

Michigan's game was previously delayed early in the third quarter during a heavy downpour with strong winds and lightning, but the stadium was not cleared at that time.
