Urban Meyer's Ohio State Buckeyes can expect great weather for their season opener against the Indiana Hoosiers in Bloomington Thursday night.
Kickoff, scheduled for shortly after 8 p.m. ET, will take place under a cloudy, but warm and dry night with a high expected of 77º. The chance of early precipitation stands at just 2%.
Wind throughout the night will hold steady at 10 mph from the northeast.
As the game progresses, temperatures will drop, approaching 72º near halftime and 68º in the fourth quarter. The chance of rain will also rise slightly for the second half, though most forecasts are expecting the rain to hold off until Friday in Bloomington.
Memorial Stadium is sold out for the game. Kirk Herbstreit, Dave Flemming and Laura Rutledge have primary coverage for ESPN's telecast of the Big Ten clash, which will receive the network's “Megacast” treatment.
