How cold will Columbia be for Mizzou Football vs New Mexico State?

It’s getting cold in Missouri. It will stay that way for Missouri Tigers football.

As Saturday rolls around for Missouri’s game against New Mexico state, the National Weather Service in Columbia called for a high of nearly 35 degrees, with the possibility of dropping to about 17 degrees overnight.

In theory, it could be an advantage for the Tigers considering Las Cruces, New Mexico, where the Aggies travel from, was in the 50s all week. Still, some MU players are not convinced.

“I mean, I think,” said safety Martez Manuel. “But it’s still cold.”

Unlike New Mexico State, the Tigers had to practice in the cold all week. They’ve had time to acclimatize and the players have been able to figure out how to try and stay warm on Saturday when they’re going to play well after the high temperatures.
