In the loss on Saturday, Kevin Minter eventually could no longer fight the humidity.

While the defenses ruled the afternoon in Saturday's game between Florida and LSU, it might have been the humidity that decided the contest, which Florida won, 14-6.

LSU linebacker Kevin Minter said fatigue "took over" on Saturday and blamed the humidity for that, according to the Shreveport Times.

Minter, who had 20 tackles and two sacks, was off the field because of the humidity for Florida's first touchdown.

"It was frustrating," Minter said. "You always think what could I have done better? Maybe I could’ve drank more water during the week. I should’ve known better. I knew it was going to be a hard-fought game. I needed to be hydrated. I totally blame myself."

Going forward, Minter said that he will "drink a lot more water."

While Saturday's home game against South Carolina is yet another big SEC showdown, it is not expected to be as hot as it was in Florida. The forecast calls for temperatures in the low 70s and high 60s.
