It’s about time, isn’t it?

Five SEC games have been delayed, canceled or called early due to lightning this season.

Then, on Saturday, 4.5 inches of rain in the days before kickoff helped demolish the playing surface at Kyle Field, which Texas A&M has decided to replace.

The Aggies will face no such issue against SMU on Saturday, as the forecast in Dallas calls for 89 degrees and mostly sunny at kickoff.

In fact, SEC teams finally can stop worrying about weather affecting Saturday’s games, at least for this week. Kickoff temperatures in the other six Saturday games range from 75 to 87 degrees. Georgia hosts Troy with a 10 percent chance of precipitation at Noon ET, but the rest of the matchups should feature plenty of sun and zero rain.

The first week with three SEC vs. SEC games should be a good one if you plan to tailgate or watch from a stadium seat. For the rest of us, at least we can bank on Mother Nature not messing up our carefully-planned TV remote schedule.
