The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Syracuse Orange will kick off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday under partly cloudy skies and amid temperatures in the mid-40s at Yankee Stadium, according to the latest AccuWeather forecast.
The current forecast says there is no chance of rain or snow on gametime, although New York City will have about an inch of snow fall tonight — and see some of it turn to slushy, wintry mess when mixed with Friday morning’s predicted rain.

Travel is a mess right now, with airports around the Bronx experiencing delays. The Port Authority is currently jammed with frustrated would-be passengers waiting for buses that are struggling to navigate through traffic accidents and poor visibility.
Tailgating is allowed at the various Quik Park lots and garages around the stadium, although you won’t be able to conquer the cold with an open fire since they’re prohibited. The weather is forecasted to be about the same from 11 a.m. onward, with similar light winds.
The temperatures Saturday — high of 47 degrees, low of 37 degrees — are pretty typical for New York City. (In fact, these were the exact highs and lows last Nov. 17.) The record high for Nov. 17 was 71 degrees in 1953; the record low was 19 degrees in 1933.
