Earlier this week the Princeton Review named, of all colleges, the University of Iowa as America's most party happy school. While Florida State and University of Florida made the top 10, the University of Miami, once the undisputed party school champion of the world back in the '80s, was no where to be seen.

Well, Fiesta Frog, a site dedicated solely to college partying, has come up with their own rival rankings and placed UM at number four. FSU however comes in first, while UF is down at ten.

Here's the site's top ten:

10. University of Florida

9. University of Iowa

8. Louisiana State University

7. Syracuse University

6. University of Wisconsin, Madison

5. University of California, Santa Barbara

4. University of Miami

3. West Virginia University

2. Arizona State University

1. Florida State University

The site claimed it used "data compiled by bloggers, our users, visitors and events" to come up with the list. Princeton Review's rankings are based on student surveys.

Sorry to Golden Knights and Bulls, but neither UCF and USF made the list. Rollins was the only other Florida school to make the list at 30.
