Weekend Sports Thread Nov. 2-3

November 1st, 2013 at 7:58 pm by under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather

   It’s a wet Friday night for high school football playoff games.   We’re going to get to 21 games on the Football Frenzy – watch us at 10 PM on WXSP and at 11 PM on WOOD for the playoff highlights.  Tomorrow is the big Michigan-Michigan State game at East Lansing.  It’s a nationally televised game and you can see the game on WOTV4 at 3:30 PM.  The two teams each have one loss on the season and are ranked #21 (MI) and #22 (MSU) in the BCS standings.  It’ll be mostly cloudy and cool in East Lansing, with about a 50/50 chance of a brief period of very light rain.  Temperatures will be in the mid-upper 40s.  WOTV4 has 3 football games on Saturday.  The Noon game features my Wisconsin Badgers taking on Iowa and the evening is a Florida showdown between Miami (#7) and Florida State (#3).  Both of those teams are undefeated.  Both Western and Central have a bye week.   Wayne St. takes on Ferris St. at Noon and at 7 PM Hillsdale and Grand Valley clash in Allendale.  While there is a chance of a sprinkle there, odds favor cloudy, dry and cool conditions.

The Lions also have a bye week.  The Sunday night game is Indianapolis at Houston on WOOD-TV at 8:30 PM.  The Monday night game is Da Bears at Lambeau Field to take on the Packers.  NASCAR is at the Texas Motor Speedway.

    Did you say “Sports Thread”? Get ready for winter sports people. Our first major winter storm will hit the week of 12-8 and then we will be in full winter sports mode! Skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ice fishing, ice skating, etc, etc! I expect a great season for winter sports! COLD and SNOW will rule!

    Where can I find rain totals, Bill? Rockford area-thanks!

      Weather Underground has estimated total precip. links. That’s at least one “free” way to get what you’re looking for.
