Auburn Vs. Ole Miss Football: Cheerleader Showdown of the Week

0 of 24

    Auburn vs. Ole Miss Football:

    The No. 1 Auburn Tigers will travel to Ole Miss to take on the Rebels on Saturday night, and this is shaping up to be another great SEC showdown.

    This season, we have seen a trend in college football:

    For the past three weeks, the No. 1 ranked teams have fallen to upsets, and every Sunday we see an entirely different set of rankings.

    So could this happen again this week?

    Probably not.

    But there is another reason to watch this game (other than to see Cameron Newton pad his stats).

    I'm talking about cheerleaders!

    Let's take a look at the lovely ladies of Auburn and Ole Miss and determine who wins this week's College Football Cheerleader Showdown!
