Saturday will be the final home game for the Ohio State football team this year. There will be plenty of fans descending on the Shoe for Senior Day. They are hoping to watch the Buckeyes win at home one more time before heading to Ann Arbor to take on TTUN.
So far this season, the Buckeyes have gotten excellent weather at the Shoe for their games. There hasn’t been a single game at home where the weather has been a factor. That’s unusual for an entire season, so they have gotten lucky so far. Will that be the case again on Saturday?
According to the Weather Channel, it should be another nice day for the Buckeyes to play some football. It will be about 50 degrees and sunny when they kick off at 4 pm. There is also no chance of precipitation during kickoff or throughout the game at any time.
The temperature will drop to the upper to mid-30s by the time the game ends. As far as the wind is concerned, it won’t play a factor. It will only be about 3-5 mph throughout the entirety of the game. Minnesota won’t be getting any help from the weather.
This should be another good day for the Buckeyes to play in front of their home fans. It should also be a good day for a win. Bad weather was one of the few chances the Golden Gophers had of pulling the upset. As long as Ohio State doesn’t look ahead, they should be fine.
There is just one more game until The Game. Ohio State just has to get past one more opponent before they can put all of their focus on their rivals. I would expect a good game from them and for them to be able to rest their starters for most of the second half.
