MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The University of Miami came out ahead of Florida on the football field last weekend and now leads UF in another key rating, this one from U.S. News & World Report.

The annual college rankings from U.S. News & World Report released Tuesday ranked UM at number 47 in the country for best university.

According to the ratings, UM has 53.3 percent of its classes with fewer than 20 students, and the student faculty ratio at the school is 11:1.

The University of Florida ranked 49th best university in the nation in the rankings. But, you will pay a lot less to go to UF than you would to go to UM.
