With lots of beautiful, throwback-tastic and not-so-cute leotards this week, we have a lot to judge. So sit back and enjoy everything from Arizona’s lace faux sports bra number to TWU’s amazing tribute to 1992. We’d also like to make a note that Ohio State’s five buckeye leaves on the sleeve of last week’s leotard represented the team’s five Big 10 championship titles! Pretty cool, we’d say.
The criteria is the same as last season. But to refresh your memories: up to three points for design; two points for fabric, sparkle, etc.; and two points for school spirit; three points for overall appearance. After assigning points to each category, we’ll tally up the scores and average them with the previous week’s. So by the end of the season, we’ll know for sure which team has the best leotards (according to us) and which teams not so much. We want to know what you thought too (or if we forgot one of your favorites from this weekend)! Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter. And make sure to vote in our poll at the bottom of the page to make your opinion heard in the fan vote, new this season.
