LSU players say heat played critical factor in loss to Florida Gators



 The Florida defense may have played its best game this season against LSU this past Saturday, but that wasn't the only reason the Gators earned a 14-6 victory, according to the LSU players.

Some Tigers players told local media in Baton Rouge that the Gainesville heat and humidity played in big role in their performance.

According to Florida's official game summary, the temperature at kickoff Saturday afternoon was 86 degrees, with humidity at 63 percent.
