Mississippi State Football Forecast: Holding on Tide Edition

The Mississippi State football team is coming off of one of the biggest upsets in Dan Mullen’s tenure. It’s a shame that we are heading to Tuscaloosa, where dreams go to die at the hands of the Tide.

But don’t let the Alabama Crimson Tide stand in your way of enjoying this Mississippi State football season. I know many people in the Tuscaloosa area, and those who work INSIDE the stadium that will do whatever possible to make your stay enjoyable. With that in mind, please be mindful of the weather outside when heading to Bryant-Denny Stadium. Also, the people outside each gate and around campus are there for your help, let them help you if you need it.

Anyways, back to the forecast shall we? After a refreshing bout of rain earlier this week, the chance of rain has diminished dramatically. Clear skies and no rain chances are expected for the Tuscaloosa area all weekend. This will make for an amazing day of football that all can enjoy, even you Alabama fans.

Also, remember that Alabama is another school that is participating in the early clear-bag policy. Just like at Davis-Wade Stadium, all bags must be clear in order for you to bring them into the stadium.

Final Thoughts

I think it’s pretty evident now that it’s going to be the same weather throughout the game. However, don’t let that lull you into thinking it’s just another Saturday from this year. We’re going to start cooling off more and more as the weeks go on. We are going to consistently have lows in the 40’s from now on, and may dip lower depending on fronts. So keep that in mind as we go into this weekend, and the rest of the season. Senior Night may be a little colder for the Bulldogs, but let’s hold off on grabbing the full Winter clothing set.
