Hot Pictures of Cheerleaders From The First Week of College Football

Russell Isabella - USATODAY Sports

You can breathe easy everybody; football is back. The NFL will finally kick off Thursday night with the Denver Broncos trying to exact a little revenge over the Baltimore Ravens, and this past weekend was the first week of college football. To help you celebrate the return of college football, we’ve compiled the hottest pictures of cheerleaders from the first week of the season.

Let’s face it, college football isn’t all about rivalries and fight songs. Part of the appeal of college football and the college football experience is cheerleaders. When you go to a stadium on Saturday, we all take a quick look to see how close we’re seated to the cheerleaders. But with this slideshow, you have a front row seat for the hottest cheerleaders in action during the first week of the college football season.

From Thursday to Monday, there were five days of excitement with hard hits, great plays, close games, and shocking upsets. But there were also five days worth of cheerleaders, for which we are all grateful. Cheerleaders from all schools from coast to coast are represented, as well as schools from all conferences, no matter how highly they’re regarded. After all, the quality of a school’s football team doesn’t necessarily represent the quality of a school’s cheerleaders. Of course, there’s no denying that certain areas of the country tend to have better-looking cheerleaders than others.

Nevertheless, we've got you covered with pictures of the hottest cheerleaders from anywhere and everywhere from the first week of college football.
