We’ve all seen the list, BYU being ranked #1 for having the “hottest and smartest” students in the country. Perhaps yesterday’s list by RateMyProfessors.com can explain a little bit more about why they are so smart.

RateMyProfessors.com is a website where college students can rank their professors. It typically serves as a sounding board for students to complain about how awful their professors were. However they just released their newest list of “Hottest Professors of 2013-14” and surprisingly (or not if you have happened to take one of his classes), BYU’s biology professor Paul Evans ranked #2 for hottest professor in the country. Now in this case, “hottest” doesn’t refer to one’s physical appearance but rather their overall score given to them by their students.

The list also came out with their “highest-rated universities” which BYU ranked 9th in. Listed below are the top 10 colleges in this rank
