Last week did not feel like October. This week? Yep, it's definitely October in Ohio.
Expect temperatures in the mid-40s for No. 3 Ohio State's Big Ten clash with the Minnesota Golden Gophers in Ohio Stadium today.
It'll be approaching 50º for the second half kickoff with the thermostat rising to a high of 54º towards the end of the game, scheduled to kick off at noon.
And while the ground may still be wet from overnight rain, the odds of precipitation will be hovering near zero for most of the game. It may sprinkle for a second, but don't expect much in the way of rain.
Tailgating early? You may see a bit more in the way of rain with odds of precipitation at 9% at 8 a.m. and then steadily falling from there. It may also be 38º around breakfast time, so do dress appropriately.
If you're interested in catching “The Best Damn Band in the Land” prior to the game, take notice:
