Nebraska-Illinois 2022: Game Day Forecast and Weather Updates

October 27, 2022

Forecast and updates brought to you by Rusty Dawkins of Husker Weather.

Nebraska vs. Illinois

Location: Lincoln, Nebraska

Date: Saturday, Oct. 29

Time: 2:30 p.m. CT

Current Forecast

If you’re headed to the game on Saturday, your weather experience is going to be determined by where your seat is located.  

For all the tailgaters out there, we’ll see plenty of sun and a light breeze in the morning, with temperatures in the 40s early. We’ll get into the upper 50s by noon.  

By the afternoon, temperatures in Lincoln will be in the middle 60s by kickoff and into the upper 50s by the end of the game. However, if your seat in the stadium is in the shade for a good portion of the game, temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees cooler. If you’re in the sun for most of the game, tack on 5 to 10 degrees. If you’re half and half… dress in layers! 

Nobody will have to worry about the wind, though. That is expected to be light and out of the southeast. Here is the hour-by-hour forecast for Lincoln:

Kickoff: Mostly sunny, 66 degrees, southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.

Halftime: Mostly sunny, 64 degrees, southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.

End of game: Mostly sunny, 58 degrees, southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.
