Because it's just easier for the flow of the game.   These guys have routines and it's tough to repeat those suddenly like that.   Plus for the fans it's even worse.  Not all of them have cars in the parking lot.  A lot of them parked really far away, some even take shuttles to the stadium.   They have nowhere to really go.  Probably half of those fans.     Better if they find out around 11:30 - the game is starting at 2pm,  bad weather is coming, make plans for that.    Interrupting a game is the worst, especially when they knew the weather was hitting so early into the game.       

 

 But in football you play through bad weather, which is what they did when the second front came through. Despite good forecasting, lightning is not very predictable and lightning is the only reason they stop a game. They would have played through wind, rain and hail (had some hail in A^2 - it was comic watching a squirrel getting pelting who apparently had no clue that it was time get out of the open).

No, wrong.  There was plenty of lightning in that storm well before it got to East Lansing.     The rest they should always play through.  But that was a strong storm front that wasn't breaking up and it was acknowledged on at least 2 different radio broadcasts that I heard as early as 11:30.   They knew it was coming.
