Sustained winds will be between 20 and 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

"There won't be much precipitation outside the mountains, but the gusty winds may affect play," Edwards said.

The passing and kicking games will be most impacted by the winds.

It will be mild for the 4:40 p.m. EST kickoff with temperatures around 50 degrees, Edwards said.
