UCLA is the blue line and USC is the red line. Google is ranking these two schools as roughly equal in terms of "buzz". How much of this traffic is generated due to college sports versus college economics?

The "eruptions" on the graph take place when big sports contests take place such as the Rose Bowl.

I just found your site while doing some preliminary research on calculating energy use of cities. I proceeded to spend 10 minutes playing with Google trends. Very cool.
