(Newser) – Promising to make the ranking an annual tradition, Playboy today named its top 10 US party schools, using an algorithm weighing hot temperatures, guy-girl ratio, empty rooms available for sex, and even GPA. “Think of this as a BCS rating, but unlike the BCS we welcome your input,” the editors write—and, fittingly, the University of Miami tops a list heavy with sports powerhouses. “When you combine weather and women, no city in the country is hotter than Miami.”

The best of the rest:

  1. University of Texas at Austin: “Everything is actually bigger in Texas: Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium, parties, cup sizes, etc.”
  2. San Diego State University: Its motto: “Study hard, party harder,” said a student.
  3. University of Florida: “Our athletic teams are a constant cause for celebration,” a student observed.
  4. University of Arizona: “Consider some of its party names: Natural Disaster, Heaven and Hell, Fubar, Jungle Party.”
