Louisiana’s college football team, the LSU Tigers, face high temperatures every game. With annual average temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius, it is not easy to play football there. To ease the weather for their team, LSU has now introduced air-conditioned football helmets. This was unanimously reported by many American media.
The team received new helmets from the university this week that have air conditioning inside. This should reduce sweat on the helmet while making competition easier for the players. According to NBC Los Angeles, the helmets should last five hours before charging.
Cool air can be adjusted individually on each helmet. According to “NBC Los Angeles,” there will be an option to direct cool air to the forehead or nose and mouth.
LSU Tigers players are visibly excited about the new helmets, with many players sharing their reactions on social media. Henceforth helmets are to be used in all sports and training sessions.

Because the Tigers play in the Southeastern Conference, games with high temperatures often await them. This season Florida State is in Orlando, Mississippi State is in Starkville, Ole Miss is in Oxford and Alabama is in Tuscaloosa. It remains to be seen whether the climate controlled helmets will give the Tigers a decisive advantage.
