Life Is But A Game: The Top Sports Schools (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 09/10/10 05:36 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:35 PM ET

Some schools are known for how their students work in the classroom -- others for how they play on the field. As part of their 10 for '10 college rankings, Unigo surveyed 30,000 college students and found the schools where sports triumph, both for those on the team and otherwise. Below are the top ten campuses where time stops for Saturday's (or Monday's or Tuesday's) game. One thing to note as you're clicking through: the schools are listed in alphabetical order.

Is your school on this list? Should it be? Let us know below.

University of Alabama

The University of Alabama is all about football. “If you absolutely abhor football, you might want to hide between the months of September and December … when Tuscaloosa becomes overrun with tailgaters, and high-pitched shouts of ‘roll tide’ constantly fill the air. School spirit, meet overdrive … it is hard to resist joining in with the other 92,000 people singing the fight song whenever our team scores a touchdown,” one student says. Another tells it like it is: “There is so much school pride here around sports, even an out-of-state kid like myself (who had no UA affiliation before college) becomes a raving lunatic when football season rolls around. Students can literally walk up to a random person's tent on the quad and sit with them and watch the game. I met one of my best friends randomly at a home football game because we got so excited towards the end of the game that we were jumping up and down and hugging each other. Being a die-hard Crimson Tide fan is honestly one of the most exhilarating experiences I've ever had in my life.”
