What’s that sports saying? “Rain is the great equalizer.”
That’s the scary thing for No. 4-ranked UGA, which opened the week as a two-touchdown favorite over Texas A&M.
There’s a dismal forecast for Saturday’s SEC showdown, which will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on CBS Sports.
There’s a 100% chance of rain at kickoff, per weather.com. The rain chances will be 70% by halftime, and then go down to 15% towards the end of the game.
Temps will hold between the mid-60s and mid-50s for the afternoon/evening affair.
For some UGA fans, this weather environment will bring back memories of the Bulldogs’ dreadful offensive performance against Kentucky last month. In pouring rain in Athens, the two teams went into halftime tied at 0-0, with some fans showering the Bulldogs with boos.
UGA quarterback Jake Fromm finished the game with a career-low 35 yards total passing.
The Bulldogs, which have already earned a berth for the SEC Championship, must win against Texas A&M to stay in contention for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
