The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl between No. 25 Boise State and Boston College was canceled Wednesday because of the threat of severe weather.

The game was canceled after a delay of nearly an hour and a half, with Boston College leading 7-0 with 5:08 remaining in the first quarter at Cotton Bowl Stadium. The delay came not long after AJ Dillon ran 19 yards for a touchdown.

Before the cancellation announcement, fans had begun returning to their seats after a line of severe storms rolled through the area near downtown Dallas. More storms were expected later in the day.

Boise (10-3) was trying for its second straight 11-win season after losing to Fresno State 19-16 in overtime in the Mountain West Conference championship game. The Eagles (7-5) were going for their first eight-win season in six years under coach Steve Addazio.
