Every Saturday in fall is a day for football, but this Saturday is the wrap up of Rivalry Week which of course includes the Iron Bowl. Regardless of where you’re watching the game Saturday, you’ll be joined with cool, crisp weather.


Auburn vs Alabama – Bryant-Denny Stadium

Alabama heads down to Tuscaloosa Saturday to take on Auburn. Milder temperatures and plenty of sunshine is waiting there! Highs in Central Alabama will pop into the low to mid 60s, with a cool northerly breeze. Temperatures will be comfortable for kickoff at 2:30, but bring a jacket with you! Temperatures will drop quickly once the sun sets, falling back into the 50s by the 4th quarter, and likely into the 40s by the time someone has claimed bragging rights.


UNA vs UNC Pembroke – Braly Stadium

It’ll be a little cooler here in the Valley where UNA will host UNC Pembroke in Florence. Be ready for a cool and breezy game. Temperatures will barely have climbed into the 50s by noon for kickoff. A stiff north wind up to 15 mph will keep it feeling cool, but the breeze will relax some for the afternoon ahead. Expect highs to top out in the 50s. Temperatures struggle to warm up in Florence, but will have no trouble cooling off Saturday evening. Temperatures are back into the 40s by 6PM.

Plenty of other rivalries will match up across the Southeast today too. Weather will stay quiet across the region with fairly typical fall temperatures expected:

Joining your fellow fans for a watch party here at home? No problem! The Iron Bowl will be right here on CBS right after a pregame special starting at 12:30. Chase Horn and Taylor Tannebaum will be live in Tuscaloosa to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
