HOUSTON -

In a new ranking, the University of Houston was listed second to last place in a study by online site BuzzFeed ranking major U.S. colleges and their students by sexiness and smartness. U of H placed extremely low on Buzz Feed’s chart, next to columns that said least academic and least sexy.

BuzzFeed says they plotted Forbes' academic rankings of colleges and universities against dating site DateMySchool's hotness index, “which measures the attractiveness of students by how much interest their dating profiles get.”  Schools in the top right of their graph scored high in both. Then BuzzFeed weighted both ranks equally and tallied them up to determine a top 10.

The No. 1 school? Brown University. “This is the top place for eye candy and brain power — Emma Watson enrolled in 2009,” according to Buzz Feed.

The lowest? Wayne State University in Detroit
