Saturday's Duck Cast
Friday, November 20, 8:00 a.m. PST
The atmosphere in Tucson will undoubtedly be raucous and wild, but according to Bobby Corser, Oregon chapter president of the American Meteorological Society, the weather on Saturday night will be mild. He chimes in with the official Duck Cast:
"The Oregon Ducks take the final road trip of the year as they head south to Tucson. After an almost perfect day at Autzen last weekend, the Ducks will really enjoy the comfortable conditions that the desert offers this weekend. Saturday will bring sunny skies and highs in the mid 70's. By the time kickoff comes around, the temperature will have come down a few degrees, but it will still be very pleasant. During the course of the game, temps will be into the upper 60's. Some would say it’s almost perfect conditions for a football game. As we enjoy more fall storms in the Willamette Valley, the Ducks and our fans will enjoy an excellent day down south! Take a light jacket if you want. Cheer on the Ducks and let's bring back one more win and then we can begin to look forward to the Civil War!"
