Forecast for Mississippi State game calling for rain

Some of you are probably still drying out from last season’s rain games, but if you’re planning on being at Kroger Field this Saturday, it’s time to break out the poncho again. The early forecast is calling for rain, with predicting a 70% chance of showers during the day, increasing to 80% at night as the remnants of Hurricane Delta move towards the Bluegrass.

A soggy game would definitely benefit Kentucky, whose rushing attack is No. 5 in the nation at 276.5 yards per game. On the flip side, Mississippi State has the No. 1 passing offense in the country, at 468.0 yards per game. May the wind gust, the ball be wet, and the visibility be poor.

Elsewhere in the SEC, there are talks of moving the Missouri vs. LSU game from Baton Rouge to Columbia. Currently, Hurricane Delta is projected to make landfall in Louisiana early Saturday morning. For now, LSU officials say they are keeping an eye on the forecast and putting contingency plans in place.

    We are there in rain, hot, cold or snow. Just dress accordingly and it is no big deal. Do wish there was better draining, our normal seats are in first row of 2nd level and the heavy rain games the water is above our ankles. But we are there

    Please let it pour on us. The only way our secondary has a chance against Mike leach is if we get a tropical storm.

    Basically the only way we can have a successful season – rain every game.

      Nah, how about 2 years ago? The difference is primarily (IMO) we had a generational RB and a generational defensive player. We need people to step up and fill that void as a team.

      Still, hopefully the rain does help us out. Man, I was in middle GA for a class reunion last year when UK was at UGA. What a monsoon that was.

      I went to that game last year Chris. Wasted money on a poncho because the rain was so hard it went straight through it. Lol

      I didn’t go to any away games last year, but that Missouri game was one for the ages, cats646! It was so miserable it ended up being a lot of fun.

      I think the SEC has really been down for the last couple of years and now UF, TN, Miss St, and UM are coming back or already are back.

    Come to think of it, the last time MSU came here it was a rain game, and that worked out pretty well. Not sure we still have a RB that can make an entire defense sub out at the goal though, line like we did with Benny Snell. lol
