If the weather forecasters are correct, Sunday’s West Division semifinal could come down to which team has the most players stay in the game mentally.

It might not matter that Travis Lulay, who hasn’t played a full game since Sept. 7, will start at quarterback for the B.C. Lions after missing six full weeks with a shoulder injury.

It might not matter that the Saskatchewan Roughriders could be feeling the pressure to win since their organization will host the Grey Cup in two weeks.

What might be the determining factor is which team has the fewest players huddled in front of those big sideline heaters on Sunday afternoon at Mosaic Stadium.
