Week Three of the College Football season is upon us, and there are a number of good matchups coming this Saturday. We have selected a few of those games to take a look at the weather for – all of them featuring a ranked football team in the AP Top 25 poll going against another Top 25 team. Of course, we can’t cover all the games in a post. So, we remind you that you can always check out the forecast for your area over at http://wx.aerisweather.com.
#14 Georgia Tech at #8 Notre Dame – 3:30 PM ET Saturday
#18 Auburn at #13 LSU – 3:30 PM ET Saturday
#18 Auburn, after barely beating Jacksonville State last week, is heading into Death Valley to face off against #13 LSU in a rare afternoon home game for the LSU Tigers. The only reason the game is being played at this time is by request of CBS, according to LSU’s Athletic Direction Joe Alleva. Of course, this is a matchup between Tigers and Tigers… so I’m betting the Tigers are going to win. I also know that this game is likely going to be quite warm in Baton Rouge, LA with temperatures around 90 at kickoff and mainly sunny skies.
#15 Ole Miss at #2 Alabama – 9:15 PM ET Saturday
Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL is where ESPN’s College Gameday is heading this week as #15 Ole Miss comes into town to face off again #2 Alabama. The Crimson Tide hope to get revenge on the Rebels that beat them early last October in Oxford 23-17. Before last years loss, Alabama had beaten Ole Miss the previous ten times. Right now we are expecting mainly clear skies for this game, with a kickoff temperature right around 80. Those temps will fall back into the mid 70s by the end of the game.
#19 BYU at #10 UCLA – 10:30 PM ET Saturday
