College Football 2011: The Hottest Girls of the New Pac-12

0 of 24

    The Pac-10 Conference had the distinction of being the most perfectly organized conference in America. It was grouped into pairs so that road trips were easy and made sense:

    Arizona-Arizona State



    Oregon-Oregon State

    Washington-Washington State

    See? Everything fit perfectly. But now, because of money and prestige, the new Pac-12 has added two teams that really don't fit into the mix. The new road trip added to the schedule will be:


    Well it might not make total sense, but there is one good thing about the new teams. At least now we can look at the hot girls from two more schools.

12. Stanford

1 of 24

    Stanford used to be known for the prowess in baseball, but over the last few years they have become one of the nation's best football programs.

    They finished just behind Oregon in the Pac-10 football standings last season with an 8-1 conference record, and look for them to be a power for years to come.

12. Stanford

2 of 24

    Stanford is one of the most highly regarded academic institutions in the country, but when the girls are done studying they're ready to let loose at a football game.

    Located in Palo Alto, the Stanford campus is abuzz whenever there's a football game, especially when Cal comes to town.

11. Oregon State

3 of 24

    When it comes to basketball and football, Oregon State hasn't really been able to compete with the other schools in its conference.

    In baseball, however, they are at the top of the pack. They won back-to-back College Wold Series titles in 2006 and 2007.

    Too bad cheerleaders don't go to baseball games.

11. Oregon State

4 of 24

    Located in Corvallis, OSU is about two hours from Portland so they probably don't get too many casual fans.

    They rely on the die hard locals who bleed orange and black. They may not get much national press, but to their fans they can do no wrong.

10. University of Washington

5 of 24

    The University of Washington is usually solid in both football and basketball. They had a dramatic win in the Pac-10 basketball tournament this year thanks to a game-winner by tiny point guard Isaiah Thomas (no relation) that pushed them into the big dance.

    In football last season they had Jake Locker, who will likely be a top pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but they still only managed to go 5-4 in conference.

    I think this girl would be a top pick if we had a cheerleader draft. 

10. University of Washington

6 of 24

    The University of Washington is located in Seattle, so they probably get a lot of fans that aren't necessarily affiliated with the school.

    I mean, if you were a local Seattle resident wouldn't you pay good money to see moves like this on the sidelines?

9. Washington State

7 of 24

    Washington State is one of those teams that is never really that good in any of the major sports. They've been solid in basketball for a few years, but nothing to write home about.

    In football they seem to lose most recruiting battles to UW or the Oregon schools, and when you have a reputation for being the doormat of the Pac-10 it can't help things.

    Although they do seem to be doing alright in terms of cheerleader recruitment.

9. Washington State

8 of 24

    It's probably not a good sign that when you type "Washington State hot fan" into Google Images, this is the first picture that comes up.

    Located in Pullam, WSU is a little bit off the beaten path, but with a nickname like "Cougars" they probably have a lot of older, attractive fans.

8. UC Berkeley

9 of 24

    Cal, otherwise known as UC Berkeley, is always decent in most sports but never great. Their football team has been at the top of the Pac-10 in past years, but they went just 3-6 last season in conference.

    They're going to need more players like Aaron Rodgers and Jahvid Best if they're going to get back to being a powerhouse in the conference.

8. UC Berkeley

10 of 24

    Located just outside of San Francisco, Cal draws the attention of many fans other than alumni and students.

    While they may not all support Cal, they all have one thing in common: they hate Stanford.

7. University of Utah

11 of 24

    Urban Meyer helped build Utah into one of the strongest football programs in the country before leaving for greener pastures in Florida.

    The Utes were sick of being overlooked because they played in a weak conference, so they decided to make the switch and become a member of the new Pac-12.

    Soon we'll see whether they can stack up to the new competition. Their cheerleaders certainly look like they can handle it.

7. University of Utah

12 of 24

    Utah may be full of Mormons, but that doesn't stop the fans from having a good time. There's no honor code at Utah like there is at BYU, so the girls are free to do whatever they like...within reason, of course.

    Although it may mess up the organization a bit, there's no denying that that expanding the Pac-10 by two teams helped their fan base.

    Now we have even more hot fans and cheerleaders to look at.

6. University of Colorado

13 of 24

    In the year before their move to the new Pac-12, the Colorado football team went 5-7 overall and 2-6 in the Big 12.

    They're hoping the move to a new conference will give them a chance to start fresh and establish themselves as a power.

    I'm sure the cheerleaders will appreciate the change in climate during those road games in November.

6. University of Colorado

14 of 24

    Colorado may be in Boulder, but it is consistently ranked as one of the top party schools in the country. And what's a better party than a college football game?

    During the tailgate and the game you can count on the girls from Colorado having a good time.

5. University of Oregon

    The University of Oregon has been strong in basketball, but their football team has really come into the national spotlight in recent years.

    They won the Pac-10 and made it to the BCS Title game this season but lost to Auburn and, despite their horrific uniforms, they have been able to build up one of the best programs in the country.

5. University of Oregon

16 of 24

    When you think of Oregon fans, you probably think of these guys. Well, at least I do.

    But they also have some hot fans hiding up there in the northwest, and when spring comes around you get to see them in their swimsuits...still supporting the Ducks through and through.

4. USC

    USC is UCLA's counterpart in the Los Angeles area. While USC happens to be in a worse part of town, it's still an expensive private school with a great academic reputation.

    USC is dominated, of course, by its football team. They had a down year due to NCAA sanctions, but it's only a matter of time before they bounce back.

    It's often said that people in L.A. don't care that they don't have an NFL team because they have USC football.

    I'm not sure how much of that is because of the cheerleaders.

4. USC

18 of 24

    Because of the success of the football program, USC gets fans from all over southern California.

    While they tend to be in the lower half of the standings in other sports, the Trojans know they will always draw plenty of blondes to their football games.

3. University of Arizona

    Arizona is best known for its basketball team, although their football team has gotten better over the years.

    They made a magical run to the Elite Eight of this year's NCAA tournament thanks to the play of likely No.1 overall NBA draft pick Derrick Williams.

    Now that Williams is gone we're not sure how the team will be, but with cheerleaders like these we won't mind watching the games no matter how bad they are.

3. University of Arizona

20 of 24

    The University of Arizona is known for having some of the hottest girls in the country and these two certainly qualify.

    Maybe it's the fact that all the girls are tanned from the sun, or maybe it's the fact that they're always walking around in skimpy clothes because it's always over 100 degrees.

    Either way we're happy to comb the stands of any Arizona game.

    UCLA has dominated the Pac-10 in every single sport at one time or another and has more National Championships in all sports than any school in the country.

    Right now they're best known for their basketball team as their football team is coming off a horrendous year, finishing 2-7 in conference.

    Maybe they should get some less distracting cheerleaders.


22 of 24

    Los Angeles is home to some of the most attractive women in the world, so they tend to get hot fans that aren't even students or alumni.

    With all the success they have in athletics they tend to get a lot of bandwagon fans and I'm sure they don't mind one bit.

1. Arizona State

23 of 24

    Arizona State is probably best known for their baseball team, which won the Pac-10 last season. They're competitive in basketball and football as well and have such esteemed alumni as James Harden and Jake "The Snake" Plummer.

    The football team finished 4-5 in conference last season but let's be honest, ASU is mostly known as a party school. With girls like this hanging around, who wouldn't want to party?

1. Arizona State

24 of 24

    Arizona State fans are always ready for a good time, and the female students go all out for sports events.

    Here are two fans embracing their inner Devil. Honestly, there is absolutely no need to watch the players when you go to an Arizona State game. There's plenty to watch in the stands.
