Lip sync battle of the bulldogs

Between the "Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon" and Spike TV, lip syncing is all the rage nowadays, and the Drake Bulldogs are getting in on the action with a lip sync tournament.

A Bulldog Lip Sync Tournament YouTube channel popped up on Aug. 12, and although only four videos have been released, they're all Internet gold.

The first match-up was a doozy, as defensive lineman Philip Hespen went toe-to-to with fellow lineman Colton Rodgers. Hespen went with a '90s hip-hop classic in Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby," while Rodgers did his best Tom Cruise impression during a rendition of Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone."

Next up, a battle between and old classic and a new pop sensation. Offensive lineman Aaron Melton melted hearts while lip syncing Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," while competitor lineman Jordan Lewinsky got everyone's attention with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."

What match-up will be next? Let's hope at least one Bulldog decides to do a Drake song.
