The Virginia Football 2018-19 season debut is delayed until 6:40pm as Charlottesville is experiencing some lightning. Fans have been told to shelter in place, and as of 6:10, fans were allowed to enter Scott Stadium.

You can find a map of locations to shelter in place here.

There is no official delay of start time, but according to Brad Franklin of Cavs Corner, the countdown clock has been stopped.

We will update you here with information as we get it. You can also sign up for updates from UVA via text:
