Talked with Montana State head coach Rob Ash and he said about the only way weather will have aÂ major impact on Saturday’s playoff game with NDSU is ifÂ there is heavy snowÂ during the game. The little black pellets in the FieldTurf, then, act like snowballs and it gets messy. That happened against Weber State a couple of years ago, on homecoming in October no less, and Ash said it was “brutal football. They had a quarterack from Hawaii and he torched us so go figure.”
“If it snows before or light snow during the game, it’s going to be OK,” he said.
The forecast as of this morning calls for a few snow showers and a high of 28 degrees, a slight downgrade from the partly cloudy outlook and a high in the low 30s earlier in the week.
