FCS Championship Game Weather Forecast: James Madison vs. North Dakota State

Sports Insights’ weather data is calling for 15-17 mph breezes throughout the game, which should certainly make connecting on long passes more difficult.

In fact, the National Weather Service also expects wind gusts up to 30 mph in Frisco Saturday afternoon, which, again, isn’t the best news for those hoping for explosive passing plays and kickers converting field goals.

As of Saturday morning, bets on the over/under are close to split — the under holds a 53% edge — yet the total has dropped from an opener of 51 to 45.
