    By the way, her favorite NFL team is the New York Giants.

    Of course, she roots for Ole Miss alumnus Eli Manning.

    That's true passion for the Tigers.

    Aw, the ladies are doing a booty shake.

    Don't you just love those?

    Here are more Southern hotties.

    Looking great, ladies, pom poms are up and ready to go.

    Go Rebels!

15 of 36

    The pledge of allegiance.

    What a great show of patriotism.

    What a great side shot of pretty women.

LSU Tigers: Front Shot

16 of 36

    But yes, I know what you're thinking.

    Front shots are better.

Ole Miss Rebels: More Cheerleaders

17 of 36

    This is a good-looking group.

    But they're not overly enthused. Why?

    The Rebels haven't really been winning—that's why.

    Their football team has earned only one SEC win all season.

LSU Tigers: Defense

18 of 36

    Have I forgotten to mention that the Tigers are the second-best team out of the SEC?

    How have they done it?

    With cute cheerleaders. No, actually the blonde one has the right answer:

    Les Miles and his defense.

Ole Miss Rebels: Cheering

19 of 36

    That's much better, ladies.

    These cheerleaders are finally showing signs of life.

LSU Tigers: Cheering

20 of 36

    But this Tigers squad is not to be outdone.

    Look at her get into it.

Ole Miss: Red Bow

21 of 36

    So which cheerleader do you like better?

    Miss Red Bow?

LSU Tigers: Purple Bow

22 of 36

    Or Miss Purple Bow?

    Miss Purple is getting too giddy for my taste.

    There's something more mysterious and sexy about her Ole Miss counterpart.

Ole Miss Rebels: Pyramid

23 of 36

    It's a tough choice between these two schools.

    Do we like the cutie at the top of the pyramid?

LSU Tigers: School Spirit

24 of 36

    Or this brunette showing a lot of school spirit from the field?

    It's so hard to decide.

Ole Miss Rebels: Tailgating

25 of 36

    Ah, a good old-fashioned tailgate.

    Barbecue, football and hot cheerleaders.

    It doesn't get any better.

LSU Tigers: Stretching

26 of 36

    But wait.

    Stretching has never looked hotter.

Ole Miss Rebels: Having Fun

27 of 36

    Look at these Mississippi ladies having fun.

LSU Tigers: Having More Fun

28 of 36

    But these LSU chicks are having even more fun.

    Is this what happens in the crowd at every home game?

Ole Miss Rebels: Full of Personalities

29 of 36

    What a great-looking group of Mississippi gals.

    An awesome blend of pretty faces and fun personalities.

LSU Tigers: Toned Bodies

30 of 36

    Meanwhile, these Tigers are just proud to show off their toned bodies.

    Aren't we lucky today?

Ole Miss Rebels: Swimsuits

31 of 36

    And what's a cheerleader showdown without swimsuits?

    Our surprise entry of this week actually comes from the ladies at Ole Miss, not the naughty gals from LSU.

LSU Tigers: Naughty

32 of 36

    LSU has her to represent.

    I told you they were naughty.

Ole Miss Rebels: T-Shirt

33 of 36

    Doesn't a cute girl just make you want to root for a football team?

    Well, at least she does.

LSU Tigers: Man Cheerleader

34 of 36

    And an ugly man in a cheerleading uniform just doesn't help the LSU cause.

    Apparently they're naughty and weird in Louisiana State.

    That poor Boy Scout is now scarred for life.

So Who Wins?

35 of 36

    It's a tough call.

    The Tigers looked like a sure-fire favorite at the start of the slideshow.

    But the Rebels had a much stronger second half.

MIssissippi Wins!

36 of 36

    In a stunning surprise upset, I'm picking the Rebels.

    Their school's Southern belles just looked more classy and sweet. Meanwhile, the Tigers were just too kinky for my taste.

    But if that's what you're into, then by all means, go ahead and make your own cheerleader showdown.
