Spartan football in October ought to be contested on a clear, crisp autumn day. It just feels right with that nip in the air, the hot chocolate vendors flogging their drinks in souvenir mugs and folks starting to bundle up in their green coats, scarves and earmuffs.
So it will be today, as an overnight low of 34 degrees warms to just 47 in the afternoon under partly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids. Winds will be consistent but not strong, between seven and 13 miles per hour.
It's a beautiful day for football!
