Texas football will play its spring game as scheduled at 6:30 p.m. CT on Saturday despite uncertainty in the weather forecasts, per Rivals.com’s Anwar Richardson.
Longhorns officials had been contemplating moving the game to a new date after Saturday forecasts called for thunderstorms in the Austin-area. But the call was made on Friday to keep the game at its scheduled kick-off time at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

As of Friday, the Longhorns should just be in the clear come kick-off time if the latest forecast holds. Weather.com is calling for a 70 percent chance of rain in Austin on Saturday with thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. The rain chances, however, drop to just 25 percent at 6 p.m. CT. and continue to decrease as the evening progresses.
Of course, Texas weather forecasts are just about as unpredictable as college football itself. Longhorns fans can only keep their fingers crossed that the skies clear by game-time, but for now, it’d be wise to monitor the weather if you’re planning on attending game.
