95-101 this weekend. With the humidity here, it should feel hotter than the AZ State regional who is looking at the same forecasted temps.

And there is still the artificial surface issue in Austin.

At the University of Missouri they have measured 173 degree surface temperatures on synthetic fields on 98 degree days, compared to 105 degrees for natural grass.

A BYU study found that synthetic surface temperature is on average 86.5 degrees higher than natural turf

A UNLV study have found synthetic surfaces to be 69 degrees hotter than natural turf

So Columbia may be "hotter" for the fans....but I think Austin is going to be "hotter" for the players as they will be at surface level.
