UPDATE: The 1 p.m. game between Oregon State and Washington is now in a weather delay. Click here for updates on when play will resume, and the new start time for the 6 p.m. game. 

Washington and Oregon State Twitter accounts find ways to pass the time during delay

Sunday's College World Series matchup between Texas and Arkansas started with the sunny skies and high temperatures we all associate with an Omaha summer. Then came the storm, followed by a delay in play. 

If you blinked you would have missed it, because it was in and out of the area around TD Ameritrade Park in what seemed like 30 minutes. 

However, the delay lasted for two hours and 49 minutes. Many of the fans took to Twitter to air their frustrations.

The NCAA rule regarding weather delays requires a 30 minute delay following the last lightning strike within an eight-mile radius of the stadium. If there is another strike, the clock resets.

Unfortunately, it looks like we could see more delays in this year's College World Series, even as early as tonight.
