While all the attention is on the University of Arizona’s high-ranking basketball team, it’s not the only rating making news.

The Daily Beast, a news and pop-culture website, released several college lists Thursday, and the UA ranks on at least two.

The UA’s highest ranking is in the “Sexiest Colleges” list, which says the campus is the 12th-most-desirable in the nation. That’s based on “hottest guys, hottest girls” and “sexual health.”

(The University of Wisconsin at Madison is the nation’s sexiest college. Go figure.)

But when it comes to academics, the UA is not so great. The “200 Best Colleges” list says Arizona ranks 123rd.

And in the subcategories used to reach the rank, UA’s academics rank 147th while its nightlife earns a score of 94th-best.

(Yale tops the brainiacs list, by the way. But the Pac-12’s Stanford comes in third, ahead of Harvard.)
