Grew up near the S&G course over on McCoy Rd. My grandfather was head of Neurology and a surgeon at Riverside Hospital. He knew Woody and would assist the team med wise. Ended up out West in my teens and fell in love with the mountains. Graduated from Park City HS and the University of Utah. I work in technology supporting Gov't accounts. Happily married to a Duck fan and living in Denver with our two sons (who are not Duck fans). GO BUCKS!

You typically see it called on a D-Lineman when he grabs a O-Lineman to make room for a stunt or blitzing LB.  I have also seen it called on a punt block play. Never on a FG attempt but the rule would still apply. Also, defensive holding is a 10 yard penalty but it would be tough for a ref to make that call unless it is blatant holding.

Here is an example from the NCAA 2015 rule book 

Team A snaps the ball at the A-35 on fourth and seven. Just after the snap lineman B77 grabs guard A66 and pulls him to one side, allowing linebacker B43 to shoot the gap to try to block the kick. B44 catches the kick at the B-25 and returns to the B-40 where he is tackled. RULING: B77’s holding foul is not covered by postscrimmage kick enforcement FI-72 RULE 10 / PENALTY ENFORCEMENT since it is before the kick. The 10-yard penalty is enforced at the previous spot. The penalty yardage gives Team A first down at the A-45.

NCAA Rule (Article 4 sec D)

Defensive players may not use hands and arms to tackle, hold or otherwise illegally obstruct an opponent other than a runner.

I agree...my concern isn't so much the rain but the wind.  Per the NOAA site, wind gusts to 30 mph. You know Wisky will load the box and dare tOSU to throw. I wouldn't mind seeing some jump balls to Noah on the outside to try and loosen things up for the run game.
