Week of rainfall won’t affect field for game

The amount of rainfall in the area over the past week will not greatly affect Saturday’s football game against Texas State, an athletics official said.

Mark Cohen, director of athletic media relations, said the field will be ready for the game. The crew that takes care of the field has had no problem painting and working on the field, he said.

According to the National Weather Service, Saturday will be partly sunny with a high of 84 degrees.

Cohen said that if there is a little sun along with wind on Saturday, that kind of weather will help conditions on the field.

The only difference from other games will be limiting the number of people on the field before the game. Cohen said the band will not practice on the field before the game.

Both teams will have a walk-through on Friday, but other than that, it is business as usual, Cohen said.
