Heart of Dallas Bowl – Utah vs. West Virginia – Tuesday, 1:30 p.m. EST
The Utes will battle the Mountaineers on Tuesday afternoon at the Cotton Bowl.
Some unsettled weather is in store with chilly air coming into the region in time for the game.
It will feel cold for morning tailgating activities with temperatures in the low to middle 40s. Brisk winds will gust at times. Rain or drizzle could fall during the morning and linger into the start of the game.
While the rain won’t be particularly heavy, the drizzle or a shower or two will be enough that fans may want a poncho in addition to cool weather gear.
Conditions will stay chilly throughout the game with AccuWeather RealFeels;reg in the 30s. The brisk winds could impact the kicking game.
Quick Lane Bowl – Duke vs. Northern Illinois – Tuesday, 5:15 p.m. EST
Northern Illinois will try to put an end to a four-year bowl losing streak when they play Duke on Tuesday.
Tailgaters outside of Ford Field will experience brutally cold air before heading inside the stadium.
Those braving the harsh elements to tailgate will need to wear lots of layers. Temperatures will be in the midteens with AccuWeather RealFeels;reg no higher than 5 F. Exposure to temperatures this low for an extended amount of time can lead to frostbite.
When fans reemerge from the stadium later in the evening, it will still be brutally cold with temperatures in the high single digits to near 10 F.
Cactus Bowl – Kansas State vs. UCLA – Tuesday, 9 p.m. EST
The Jayhawks will take on the Bruines at Chase Field in Phoenix on Tuesday evening.
Tranquil and beautiful weather conditions are in store with temperatures in the 60s for much of the game, which could keep the roof open.
For those partaking in pre-game festivities outside, it’ll be seasonably warm in the upper 60s to low 70s during the late afternoon and early evening hours with under partial sunshine.
During the game, temperatures will fall back through the 60s, and may even dip into the upper 50s by the end of the game. Because of this, fans may want a light jacket or sweatshirt as they exit the stadium.
