The 10 hottest college football players of 2014

Thursday August 28th, 2014

It’s the most wonderful time of year: college football season. There’s something about the brisk air of a college game day that makes you feel good inside. Your friends, your school, your team – it all comes together in perfect harmony. But let's take a moment to remember those young men who put themselves in harm's way for our entertainment. Many fans are less interested in the game itself and more interested in the strapping young men playing it.

A football uniform can make anyone look more attractive. Maybe it’s the shoulder pads that accentuate their muscles or those wonderful spandex pants. Whatever it may be, it’s hot. We painstakingly looked through over 6,000 player profiles to bring you this year’s hottest college football players (who are all over the age of eighteen, I promise). You're welcome.

Did this guy come straight from an Abercrombie shoot, or was he just born perfectly-coiffed?

The headband looks so much better on Jared than LeBron.

Senior Long Snapper | Vanderbilt

I think Sunshine from Remember the Titans has been reincarnated as Andrew East. Shawn Johnson is one lucky lady.

9.Cam McDaniel
Senior Running Back | Notre Dame

Cam McDaniel’s helmet was knocked off, he’s in the middle of being tackled while still holding on to the football and he still looks like he’s in the middle of shooting a magazine ad.

I wish I would’ve taken this picture… because then it would mean I got to wake up to this beautiful face.
