Who doesn’t love beautiful women?

During the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (No. 1 Georgia vs. No. 4 Ohio State) and Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic (No. 10 USC vs. No. 16 Tulane), a lot of people pointed out how ESPN was “criminally horny” — as Barstool Sports put it — and kept pointing out pretty girls in the crowd, with two in particular sticking out.

The two ladies are Catherine, known as “Peach Bowl Girl,” and Ellie, who is known as “Cotton Bowl Girl.” Catherine is an Ohio State fan, who took a nailbiter 42-41 loss to Georgia in the Peach Bowl, while Ellie was rooting for Tulane, who pulled off a massive 46-45 upset over the iconic USC program in the Cotton Bowl.

Here is Catherine:

Now the world of college football is completely divided, trying to decide who they think is hotter between “Peach Bowl Girl” and “Cotton Bowl Girl.” Let’s take a look at another set of videos to get a better view.

Here’s another video of Catherine:

Let’s go for a round three, because I’m still not decided yet, and let’s do this round with multiple angles.

Take it away, “Peach Bowl Girl”:

Both of these girls are pretty damn cute, but after further deliberation, I think you have to rock with “Peach Bowl Girl” here — and I’m a Michigan guy saying that. Those blue eyes mixed with that blonde hair, yeah … You’re not beating that. (RELATED: Heisman Trophy-Winning Quarterback Bryce Young Declares For NFL Draft)

But like I said, both girls are pretty cute. “Cotton Bowl Girl” definitely has some very attractive green eyes, and the brown hair to go with it makes them absolutely pop. She’s a looker, but like I said, it’s hard to compete with blue eyes and blonde hair.

So, my decision: both girls are cute, but I’m rocking with the blonde. Those eyes just suck me in.
