As has been warned for several days, a line of severe storms is expected to arrive in the city of Columbia during the afternoon hours. The threat includes rain, high winds, frequent lightning, with the possibility of hail and even tornadoes.
The game, which is scheduled to begin at central time, will most certainly be played under substandard conditions, but the real issue is the potential of multiple delays, and the threat to public safety.
