Poor weather has yet to make a significant impact on college football bowl season, especially compared to years past.
However, the weather forecast for Thursday’s Armed Forces Bowl between Mississippi State and Tulsa isn’t just ugly by this season’s standards, it’s calling for equally brutal wet and windy conditions that should have a significant effect on scoring.
Let’s take a look at the full Mississippi State vs. Tulsa weather forecast and how it’s moving Armed Forces Bowl odds.
Mississippi State vs. Tulsa Weather Forecast
The Armed Forces Bowl will be played in Fort Worth, Texas and boy, is this forecast a gross one.
The National Weather Service is calling for a 100% chance of precipitation in Fort Worth on Thursday, with 1-2 inches of rain possible.
And it’s not just wet conditions players will have to manage.
Steady winds of 15 mph are expected, with gusts up to 30 mph.
Sports Insights’ weather data shows the Mississippi State vs. Tulsa weather forecast in more specific detail, showing an 85% chance of rain with 15-16 mph breezes blowing across the field throughout the game.
And as we know from The Action Network’s Windy Unders PRO Betting System, 57% of games played in winds of at least 13 mph have gone under the closing total since 2005.
With this in mind, it’s not at all surprising to see the Armed Forces Bowl total drop from an opener of 50 to 45 (click here for the latest college football bowl game and College Football Playoff odds).
