Football can be an extremely hot sport to play especially this Saturday as our weather expert Scott Dorval, has temperatures in the 80’s at kick off in Louisiana which doesn't sound bad but the humidity could be choking the players it's around 70 percent.  

Put that in perspective in Boise it will feel like an autumn day if kick off was here game time temperatures would be around 60 degrees.  Just how are the players trying to stay refreshed? 

One they drink a lot of water two they have been practicing inside to get used to the heat and finally it can be as simple as just changing your jockey shorts.

“Pack extra underwear that's what we really worry about, pack enough stuff to go.  It's nice to have that extra time to acclimatize but we don't treat it any differently,” Said, Defensive Tackle Elliot Hoyte.
