ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan's game against Utah has resumed after a lightning delay of 2 hours, 24 minutes. The Wolverines trail 26-10.

Play was halted with 7:51 remaining in the fourth quarter Saturday and the Utes in total control.

Michigan backup quarterback Shane Morris - who came on after Devin Gardner was ineffective - was intercepted by Tevin Carter, who returned it 59 yards into Michigan territory. Then fans were told to leave the seating bowl amid a downpour, and players headed toward the tunnel.

Play resumed in front of a mostly empty Michigan Stadium.
