Sure it will. The traction for the front is for braking, for the rear is accellerating. They are opposite functions.
A tire will throw water either way as long as there are sipes.

Still, a lot of people doing this like to run in the direction indicated. I think it has something to do with their comfort zone. They're already breaking the laws of nature just by running a rear in front, then god help them if they ran it backwards.
