unlv-rebelsHere comes the start of football weather. Much cooler football weather.

Most of the college football universe will be enjoying temperatures of 75° or lower this weekend as cooler weather says hello to most of the country. The top two sweatiest games in The Sweaty 16 will be played in the desert heat of Nevada and Arizona this weekend. The Heat Index for both games is expected to be more than 83°.

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 rest of the top 10 includes many venues across the south (Florida, Texas and Alabama). A top 10 with noticeably less humidity than in previous weeks.

As always drink plenty of water.
