    Exclamation Nebraska at Ohio State Game Day Weather Forecast

    ************ PLEASE CHECK THE MOST RECENT UPDATE ON POST #19 ***********


    8PM EDT Kickoff in Columbus (7PM CDT)...

    September brought us all sorts of nice weather for football. Good chance you'll get to see your first "bad weather" game this coming Saturday night in Columbus.

    The high Saturday afternoon will be right around 60 (might fall shy of that). Temperatures in the first half in the 50s ... 40s a good bet for the second half. But that's not the real story. Good chance of rain Saturday night in Columbus. Depending on the timing (still quite a few days out), the bulk may fall after the game. But, it will be a real challenge to get through this game dry. On top of that, might be a bit more wind to contend with than what we've seen this season.

    Sounds like a game to be won or lost in the trenches. And where turnovers could be a significant factor.

    Last year the Ohio State game was played in rain also, if you recall. Both teams put the ball on the turf multiple times last Saturday with two lost fumbles each. Add rain to the mix and it could get even more dicey. It could also hurt our passing attack which is better than OSUs.

    And we'll be sitting way up high in section 8C. It could get wet and cold!

    If our two lines play like the second half we will win. I love rainy weather football.

    That is true. I hope HWM is wrong about the rain Saturday night.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    I used to agree with that, but since the demise of real turf for this field turf stuff you now have the absence of mud. It just ain't the same without mud. Now they're just skipping around in water puddles. It just looks so much tougher with jerseys covered in mud.

    Could this be one of those games where the winner jumps to an early lead and then doggedly tries to hang on as the conditions deteriorate? Will the rain be as bad as Missouri '09? Will rain squelch the home field advantage?

    I'm watching the computer models coming out as I type this.... rain could be arriving earlier, which may suggest it's mostly over before kickoff. I'll post a full update within the next day or two.

    I don't trust anything from a weatherman over 6 hours out.

    That's okay. I don't trust the majority of "information" I read on this site.

    Thumbs up Thursday PM Update

    Looking better so far as rain chances are concerned. In fact, all around, it looks better -- other than it will be chilly (but that's fine for football).

    Temperatures will be in the 40s for most of the game. The wind will be out of the west-northwest -- but it appears at no more than 10mph. It will likely rain Saturday morning. And then another chance Sunday morning. But the game itself fits into what looks like a dry window of opportunity at this point.

    It might feel more like November -- but it shouldn't be all that bad.

    If I see a need for another update (it's a fairly active, changeable weather pattern), I'll update. But for now, it's all systems go (big red)!

    Thanks, Weatherman. I guess I'll leave the winter coat at home, but use sweatshirt and jacket.
