    Arkansas Vs. South Carolina Football: Cheerleader Showdown of the Week

    This week's showdown between the No. 18 Arkansas Razorbacks and the No. 19 South Carolina Gamecocks in Columbia has the potential to be epic, with Arkansas' Ryan Mallett squaring off against Steve Spurrier and Stephen Garcia.

    But while Arkansas will indeed be occupied with making life hard for South Carolina in the SEC East, the real attraction will be, as always, on the sidelines.

    That's right. Cheerleaders. You love them, I love them, we all love them. But especially me.

    Let's take a look at what each side has to offer, and see if we can't make a game of it.

    This looks like something out of The Matrix. No foolin'.

Talent Winners

11 of 23

    Close call, but the Gamecocks girls get extra points for not always needing help from the boys.

Out Of Uniform: Arkansas

12 of 23

    These two deserve points for being in uniform while they're technically out of uniform.

    Well she's not wearing her uniform anyway.

    Besides, who cares!?

    They may be out of uniform, but they're not about to sacrifice school spirit.

    Big ups.

Meet an Arkansas Cheerleader: Kasey

15 of 23

    Say hello to Kasey (on the right).

    Kasey was featured as Football Insider's Cheerleader of the Month.

    She's afraid of the dark and hates being alone. An invitation?

Meet a South Carolina Cheerleader: Brittany

16 of 23

    Friends, this is Brittany.

    Brittany was a featured as a Cheerleader of the Week for Sports Illustrated.

    She loves Saved by the Bell, and her favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys.

Kasey Vs. Brittany

17 of 23

    You really can't go wrong with Kasey or Brittany.

    But Kasey wins because she just sounds a lot cuter.

    Plus, the whole Dallas Cowboys thing would be a real sticking point with Brittany.

Hotness Factor: Arkansas

18 of 23

    They have a kind of down to earth hotness factor, don't you think?

Hotness Factor: South Carolina

    On the flipside, South Carolina girls look like they have nice laughs.

Hotness Winners

    You have every right to be excited, my dear.

    You and your squad has just won a hotness contest!

    Arkansas' cheerleaders have a lot going for them, but South Carolina's get the nod.

    Disagree? Sue me.

Who Wins The Game

23 of 23

    South Carolina may have the better cheerleaders, but Arkansas has the better football team. Fact.

    The Hogs will be called, and they will prevail.

    Prediction: Arkansas 42, South Carolina 30
