Game Time Forecast
With an early kickoff, Williams said in his interview with Fowler that the temperatures were “going to be probably hovering in the upper 80s and then warming through the game as we get into the heat of the afternoon.” Then headed “into the fourth quarter, wrapping up the game it will probably be around 95 – 96 in the afternoon.”
Williams commented to Fowler that “if you spent a few summer afternoons in Tuscaloosa. I don't know if 96 is going to be anything too out of your world.”
This summer they have had 68 triple-digit days. Williams noted that is “brutal even here in Central Texas has actually been our second hottest summer on record.” However, the weather had “flipped the switch. It's been stormy” with “some storms that move through yesterday evening, but that won't be a factor over the weekend.
It's just gonna be hot 96 degrees, probably not quite the Deep South humidity that the Alabama football players are used to in Tuscaloosa, but it'll be hot and that's for sure.”
It will be a great day to do some Austin, Texas sightseeing and take in a good Texas meal. Sunday will be a little bit warm with a high expected around 98 degrees with Sunday skies. The evening time will be mostly clear with a low around 72.
