The Governor’s Cup forecast is cold, wet, and gross

It’s going to get quite sloppy at Kroger Field on Saturday afternoon.

According to WLKY meteorologist Chris Johnson, the updated forecast for tomorrow’s highly-anticipated Governor’s Cup matchup between Kentucky and Louisville will feature rain, rain, and more rain.

“The forecast for the Governor’s Cup is about as ugly as you get,” Johnson said on Twitter. “Rain will be likely, heavy at times along with chilly [temperatures] in the 40s. Should make for an interesting game!”

WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey released an official game day forecast of his own, with temperatures in the 40s and rain predicted from start to finish.

(Bonus points if you caught the L’s down on the first pass)

As we’ve seen in Kentucky’s recent rain-filled outings, they have played rather well in difficult conditions, especially in the run game. In a monsoon against Missouri on Oct. 26, the Wildcats managed 360 total yards, including 297 on the ground. In the 29-7 victory over the Tigers, Lynn Bowden led the way with 204 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.

Get your ponchos ready, BBN. It’s going to be a wet one.
