The temps are falling all around. Fall is here. But for those attending the myriad of college football

games this weekend there is still a decent chance of getting swampbutt in the stands.

Leaders in the Sweaty 16 this week are the South Carolina-Texas A&M game in Columbia and the Florida State-North Carolina game in Tallahassee. Both will have a Heat Index 83°. All the games this weekend with a Heat Index of at least 80° will be taking place in the southern U.S. 

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.

As always drink plenty of water.
