USC students might be trying to claim victory in an unspoken hardest-partying contest among local college students--or they're just doing what college kids tend to do: PARTY!!!!

In today's wee morning hours, bragging rights may well have been earned by a handful of revelers, according to ABC7:

Police broke up a gathering of about 1,000 students early Saturday, arresting nine of them on suspicion of public drunkenness. LAPD began receiving complaints about the party near Orchard Avenue and 30th Street shortly after midnight.

The reports traced the gathering to fraternity row, located just north of the USC campus.

Come on, Bruins, beat that!
