Bitter cold air and windy conditions will make for the chilliest Ohio State game so far this season.

Bitter cold expected for Ohio State, Michigan State game

A bitterly  cold game is expected as Ohio State travels to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday. 

Temperature both at Spartan Stadium and here in Dayton will start off in the upper 20s at kickoff, and climb into the lower to mid-30s by the end of the game.

Stay up-to-date with the WHIO Weather App
If you're driving north for the game, you'll likely run into 15-25 mph west winds with gusts as high as 30-35 mph. As you'll be traveling directly north if you are headed to the game, these west winds could have an impact on driving during the four-hour trip. 

Avoid drifting and pay attention to the change in the winds when passing large trucks and other high profile vehicles.

Snow flurries possible tonight with more snowflakes to fall over the weekend
The biggest takeaway, whether you're heading to East Lansing or staying here, is to BUNDLE UP. It's going to be the coldest game of the season thus far.
