Weather forecast: No snow in Boulder
The long-range weather forecast looks OK for OSU at Colorado. Sunny Saturday, with a high of 50 ranging to a low of 34. The game kicks off at 7 p.m., so that 34 is more likely than the 50 for game-time.
But still. Play in the Mountains in November, and you’re fortunate if you don’t get wet.
Colorado can have pristine days in October. The very best football weather I’ve ever experienced has been day games in Boulder. In October.
But this is night in November. You can find some comfortable November days in Colorado. You won’t find comfortable November nights. The move of this kickoff to 7 p.m. assures a cold, cold game.
Looks like it will be clear. But it will be cold.
We don’t play many cold games here in Oklahoma anymore. Football fans can testify to global warming. Even the November games generally are fantastic weather. The current November is the old October; our September weather has moved to October, our October weather has moved to November.
OSU used to routinely play in Boulder in November: the Cowboys are 3-6 at Colorado in November and 4-7 at Colorado in September or October, so historically, the date doesn’t seem to matter.
But I can’t remember any of those November games being played at night. Dress warmly.
