In the Tailgate Forecast for 10/21/2017, we head to Atlanta, Greenville, Durham, and Blacksburg to see how your #TailG8 is shaping up this Saturday.
Pittsburgh @ Duke, 12:20PM
Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, NC
This is what fall football weather is all about. Crisp morning air with temperatures in the lower 50s that steadily climb to the lower 70s near kickoff, peaking in the upper 70s as the game winds down. A northerly breeze becomes southeasterly at 5-10 mph through the game. Plenty of sunshine, so you’ll want to bring some sunscreen. 88% chance Duke edges closer to bowl eligibility with a win. 69% chance Daniel Jones finally throws for more than one touchdown for the first time since Northwestern. It’s been so long since this offense did something…
UNC @ Virginia Tech, 3:30PM
Lane Stadium, Blacksburg, VA
I imagine this forecast will only interest Hokie fans. There’s a 99% chance all Heels fans have moved on to basketball at this point. If you’re at the tailgate, temperatures will be in the mid 50s at the start and climb to the upper 60s prior to kickoff. A high around 70 with gradually increasing cloud coverage. It’ll be a beautiful day for football. 0% chance Carolina gets their first win but there’s at least 36.4% chance they cover the 21-point spread.
BYU @ ECU, 7:00PM
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, Greenville, NC
Mid-to-upper 70s during the tailgate falling to the mid 60s by kickoff and into the upper 50s as you leave. If you go, I mean. 83.2% chance you’ll just watch your football team fall deeper into a pit of despair, choking quietly on their own ineptitude.
Wake Forest @ Georgia Tech, 7:30PM
Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, GA
Pleasant to warm conditions during the tailgate with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s falling to the upper 60s around kickoff. Mostly sunny skies with gradually increasing cloudiness with winds out of the east to southeast. Wake hasn’t scored more than 20 points since mid-September there’s a 12% chance they do this weekend. 73% chance they drop their 3rd ACC contest in a row. Things have gone slightly off course.
