Football Powerhouses Also Make A Play For Top Party Schools

This week the Princeton Review released its annual rankings of the Top 10 ‘party schools’ in the US, as ranked by a survey of 122,000 co-eds at 371 colleges.  And how surprising is it that there seems to be some overlap when you also consider some of the top ranked college football teams is the nation?  Probably not surprising at all.

We compared the top party school list with the Preseason Top 25 College Football rankings by our parnter, Athlon Sports.  This is what we found.  All four of the top-ranking party schools were also ranked in the preseason Top 25 (top 14, actually) for football, and of the top 10 party schools, six also had ranked football teams.  Call it antoher testament to what we knew all along: football is life.
