Kickoff is still over three hours away in Tuscaloosa between No. 1 Alabama and Ole Miss, and University of Alabama Athletics posted this picture of an empty Bryant-Denny Stadium today on their Facebook page.

They called the photo 'The calm before the storm', which is fitting because there are some showers moving near the campus.

According the ABC 33/40 Weather Blog, Alabama fans may see some light showers between now and kickoff, with the heavier precipitation staying south of Tuscaloosa.
