UL Football Weather Forecast & How to Listen/Watch
It's looking like a pretty good fall afternoon on Saturday in Lafayette, where the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns will take on the Arkansas St. Red Wolves in a Sun Belt Conference match-up, marking the first Saturday home game for UL since September.
The forecast is calling for partly skies, with about a 30% chance of rain, along with an afternoon high near 78 degrees and a light wind of about 8 mph.
After a pleasant morning, expect the temperature to reach 69 at 9 am, before increasing to 73 at 10 am, and then reaching 75 degrees at kickoff time for what is this year's homecoming contest.
The good weather is expected to continue during the game, with temperatures reaching 78 degrees by 1 o'clock.
So, from what we can tell, the weather should not be an issue as Louisiana and Arkansas St. meet today.
