Seems like when it comes to the sexiest college football coach in the Lone Star State, a shirtless photo featuring washboard abs always comes out a winner.

That appears to be the case in our recent poll asking readers to choose the hottest-looking coach in the state. Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, who gained a lot of attention a year ago when he appeared in a photo wearing only board shorts and surrounded by two bikini babes created a social media firestorm as fans noticed a striking resemblance to actor Ryan Gosling, came out the winner.

University of Houston head coach Tom Herman, whose magnetic personality and Mensa membership proved enticing to many voters, was virtually tied with Kingsbury on the last day of voting. But a late surge put the Texas Tech coach in the lead for good.
