It is, uh, quite windy in Knoxville right now, to say the least. But the LSU Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers are still supposed to play a game at Neyland Stadium.
However, the Tennessee goalposts have already been bent by the wind, and apparently a giant piece of the scoreboard has also been torn away by the wind.
As you can see in the video and photo below, a seemingly 6-foot by 2-foot piece of the metal scoreboard came free and blew into an LSU fan:

Huge piece of metal (about 6 foot by 2 foot) just got blown off the Tennessee scoreboard and landed in the #LSU section missing 2 guys by inches. High winds here. Crazy. #GeauxTigers#LSUvsTENN pic.twitter.com/ErRcmq9630

That situation could lead to some legal issues for the Vols, but for now, their only concern is making sure Saturday night’s game can be played.
A loss in Saturday night’s contest means the Vols won’t qualify for a bowl game this year. But in interim coach Brady Hoke’s first game, perhaps the Vols will come out with the same fury that the wind has so far tonight.
