georgiabulldogs_fans_2014_2The beginning of fall is upon us, but you wouldn’t know it with the expected temperatures in Texas and throughout the south. A cold front is expected this weekend in the Lone Star State, but three of the top four of the Sweaty 16 this week will be Texas.

The Heat Index is the temperature felt by the skin rather than the actual temperature due to the humidity level. When its hot outside humans sweat a lot and heat is removed via evaporation of sweat. But when its humid the evaporation rate slows down because of all the water already in the air. That’s when the affliction known as swampbutt occurs. And that’s where materials that can wick sweat away from the body can help.

The Baylor-Oklahoma State game is predicted to have a Heat Index of 101°. So expect to have a lot of sticky people in Waco. And those folks could be sticky for a quite a while if both offenses keep scoring like they have done prior games.

The Friday night game between SMU-TCU will be a sweatfest as well. And the fans at the Texas State-Houston game in San Marcos, Texas will need to drink plenty of water.
