The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are all set to take on the Oregon State Beavers in the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, on Friday. The last time the Irish played in the Sun Bowl, the weather was more like a South Bend winter with plenty of cold and snow — which was definitely fun to watch as their opponent (the Miami Hurricanes) looked miserable on the sidelines and on the field.
That won’t be the case this time around.
The Sun Bowl weather forecast this time around is much more mild, and probably won’t impact the game whatsoever.
The game should have the feel of a mid-October game in South Bend as they will see a high of 57 against a sky that will have periods of clouds and sunshine. With just a very light breeze, the winds will also have little impact on the game.
Basically... this is some really nice football weather.
