Hot College Cheerleaders Bowl Game Showdown: Mega-Gallery Edition

The holiday season brings lots of gifts, but for fans of college football and cheerleaders few presents are sweeter than the NCAA football bowl games. It’s a time when every team still standing fights to end their long season with a “W,” when casual and hardcore football fans alike are treated to days of nonstop action.

Most of you are no doubt looking forward to the BCS National Title game (or maybe even the Orange or Rose Bowl), we can’t say that we exactly blame you. How fitting is it that Auburn earned the right to face off against FSU after their incredible last-second kick return to beat Alabama?

But don’t for one second think that the only game you should be paying attention to is the BCS Championship–there are tons of games that are sure to be worth watching. Even if the teams aren’t ones you follow or could even place on a map, the cheerleaders alone should get your attention. Speaking of which, it’s time we got down to the meat and potatoes of this post.

As is tradition, we’ve laid out every single bowl game (plus time, date, school records, and location) with the inclusion of each team’s cheerleaders in the hopes that you’ll pick your favorites. After the bowl games are done, we’ll let you know whether the looks of the cheerleaders affected the games outcomes.
