Georgia football went from having hot weather to almost cold weather in a matter of two weeks. While they got perfect football weather last week in Jacksonville, the weather looks questionable on Saturday in Athens.
According to weather.com, Athens will have a high of 58 degrees with a 15% chance of rain.
Expect Saturday to be cloudy for most of the day, with the sun rising at 7:57 a.m.
With it being a noon game, make sure you wear some sleeves and long pants to keep warm, or bring layers because it won’t get very warm at all.
In November, these early games aren’t nearly as bad because it doesn’t get too hot, and then the night games drop way down, and it’s bone-chilling.
A beanie cap would likely be helpful and a jacket because the sun isn’t going to shine much at all, and with the winds possibly howling at 10-to-15 mph, it’ll only benefit the fans in the long run.
While Dawg fans didn’t get much of a Fall to watch football games, this weather is better than it being 100-degrees outside. It may be cold, but one could say this colder weather means football season is going on too.
The colder it gets, the closer the SEC Championship, playoffs and national title games are. This team and fanbase want nothing more than to win it all, so enjoy the colder weather because that means the end goals are closer.
Be prepared for rain, too, just in case. While there is only a 15% chance, it could still happen. There haven’t been many weather issues this season, so the Dawgs are overdue for some questionable weather, and with Missouri coming to town, this weekend would be the one where that happens.
However, if Georgia ever needs to have a game where running the ball can be its top priority, this game is it. The Tigers defense struggles against the run, so questionable weather could be beneficial for the Dawgs.
Make sure you dress accordingly for the first cold game of the season.
