It's unclear what will happen next as far as rescheduling, and a total cancellation without a rescheduled match certainly isn't out of the question either, but we'll just have to wait and see as news continues to develop on the situation.
First Responders Bowl Game canceled due to lightning and severe weather. Ruled a no contest. Disappointed and sad for the players and coaches who worked hard to get ready for this. Thanks… https://t.co/6qmwvNSpWH— Wes Comer (@WesComer) December 26, 2018
The total over/under for Wednesday's matchup had already dropped by six full points from a combined 56 to 50 via FanDuel Sportsbook, and it's safe to say the weather was a big reason why.
The spread separating Boise State and Boston College was experiencing slight fluctuations shortly before kickoff in Dallas on Wednesday afternoon but closed with Boise State as 1.5-point favorites.
Thanks to the first responders who who were ready in case of emergency at the First Responder Bowl that never happened.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) December 26, 2018
Contrary to popular belief, it turns out that Dallas, Texas, and not a place like Boise, Idaho, or New York, appears to have the worst weather conditions for a December or early January bowl game that we've seen in a while.
