Birmingham Bowl Weather Forecast: Boston College vs. Cincinnati
The total for this matchup opened at 54.5 and climbed as high as 56, but that did not last.
Sports Insights’ weather data is calling for rain and steady 11 mph winds throughout the game.
According to the National Weather Service, a flood watch is in effect for much of the region from noon local time today until 6 p.m. Friday, with the possibility of two to four inches of rain falling.
The system pushing through also brings increasing winds throughout the afternoon Thursday, so it’s certainly possible that stronger breezes hit Birmingham, especially during the second half of the game.
Driving rain and wind certainly aren’t optimal for high-scoring, explosive offense, so it’s no surprise to see this total down to 53.5, and even to 53 in some spots.
