West Virginia: Coldest USF game ever?
The news that USF's regular-season finale Saturday at West Virginia will have an 8 p.m. kickoff begs a chilling question: Will this be the coldest football game in Bulls history?
The Bulls have only played two games with temperatures below 40 degrees at kickoff -- they won at Pittsburgh last season in 35 degree weather, and lost at Connecticut in 2005 in a game that was 33 degrees at kickoff, dropping into the 20s during the game.
The 10-day forecast at Weather.com has Saturday with a high of 40 degrees and a low of 25 -- that's Fahrenheit, not the 25 degrees Celsius we had in Tampa this weekend. Snow is forecasted in Morgantown on Thursday and Friday, so you could easily have snow on the ground for Saturday's game.
When the Bulls won at West Virginia two years ago, they dodged the cold weather completely, with the temperature at kickoff an unseasonably warm 59 degrees. They won't be as lucky this time around ...
