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 Weather.com 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.

They are monitoring the storm but it's too early to make a determination. Working with SEC and Missouri on contingency plans. pic.twitter.com/ldnwE3VntL
