Game Day Weather Forecast: Expect Late November Weather for the 116th Edition of “The Game”

Expect late November weather for the 116th edition of “The Game.”

This is it.

This is the Saturday Ohio State fans wait all year for. No. 1 Ohio State. No. 13 Michigan. 

This year, “The Game” takes place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which means you can expect good, old-fashioned late November weather for the greatest rivalry in sport.

The Buckeyes have won seven straight in the series, and 13 of 15*, thanks to the mastery of Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer, two Ohio men who knew just how much this rivalry means. (As an aside, a Michigan fan recently told us that we take this rivalry way more seriously than they do, to which we replied, “Good.”)

If you're heading to the game, you'll want to bundle up with a high of 35º at kickoff and a small breeze out of the southeast at 9 mph.

Look for the thermometer to climb as the game moves into the second half, with highs approaching 38º and the wind a constant. It will be overcast all afternoon, with a decent chance of precipitation: hovering around 30-40% for the game, but nothing etched into stone.

If you're heading to Ann Arbor and want to tailgate before the game, again, bundle up. You're looking at a high of 30º at 8 a.m. with the thermometer rising to just 34º an hour before kickoff.

Watching the game at home? Here's what you need to know:

KICKOFF: 12:08 p.m.
LINE: Ohio State -8
