Not that you need any reminder, but this spring has gotten off to a horrendous start for everyone north of the Mason-Dixon Line (and even many below it). As a result, the Iowa State Cyclones become the latest team to cancel their spring game on Saturday due to a poor weather forecast.
As of early this week, Ames, Iowa is expecting a 70% chance of heavy rains, with highs only reaching the mid-40’s. And to make matter worse, temperatures will drop on Sunday and the area could see snow. Yikes.
In a statement, athletic director Jamie Pollard said, “Coach Campbell and I mutually decided to cancel the Spring Game due to the anticipated weather for Saturday. We know this will be disappointing for our fans and players. The football team will use Saturday as their final practice in a closed practice similar to this spring.”
The university also announced that the majority of the other related activities surrounding the Spring Game are also cancelled, which includes Cyclone Carnival, Jr. Cyclone Club Football Clinic and the Cyclone Gridiron Club Tailgate.
And for those wondering, Cy’s House of Trivia on Saturday night will still take place, with doors opening at the Hilton Coliseum at 5:00.
