    Weather will be hot and sunny. If your seats are on the east side, or high in either end zone, be sure to have wide-brimmed hats, good sunglasses, and lots of sunscreen for everybody.

    Counter-intuitively, lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored, long sleeved shirts might not be a bad idea, especially in the east stands. It's what the Saudis wear in the desert, and that east side sun beating down can feel similar.
    At 3 in the afternoon in the West side will it be in shade yet?

    Thanks for any info.

    Depends on the exact location of your seats.

    If you’re in any of the west side upper decks (U-1, U-2, or U-3), you’ll be shaded by kickoff. If you’re between the 20s in the lower bowl, I think you’ll probably be shaded unless you’re down low. But you’re dealing with angles, DST, and the changing path of the sun as the year progresses.

    If you’re in the sun, it’ll be hitting the back of your neck and maybe one side of your face, and a baseball cap won’t help with any of that.

    If there’s any doubt in your mind, to be safe, I’d still recommend the wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen. If it turns out you don’t need them, it’s not a big deal. But if you need them and don’t have them, you’re in for a sunburned and uncomfortable week to 10 days.

    Be sure to check traffic patterns on Waze because Tuscaloosa is and has been for the last 5 years or so the land of the orange barrel. I think the State ALDOT Auburn engineers are screwing us personally. Plan to park either at Central high school or the church behind it if you don't have a parking pass somewhere. Bring a yeti type cup to the game for water. The University will have water stations throughout the stadium, you'll need it. Have fun and Roll tide.

    I canít imagine sitting in the stands for that or worse playing! I betcha the field temps will hit 120!

    Any chance they would move the game to a later kick off time for player and spectator safety?

    I'd say about a 0% chance - it's a broadcast game, so far less flexibility.

    Just gotta take refillable water bottle(s) and stay hydrated. Being in the west deck would help later in the game - east side is gonna get roasted.

    Headed to Ole Miss. Maybe a dumb question, but are vapes allowed in BDS? If so, I imagine there are designated areas... Thanks!

    Going to be a great deal of the crow leaving early. Won't be as bad as if it were a close game. Good time to stay till the end.

    No vapes and no designated smoking areas in the stadium or on campus. Smoke free completely.
