is there a link between the amount of alcohol you drink and your GPA?

i'm curious because i came across a graph showing that if the average college student were to consume about 10 alcoholic drinks per week, they would achieve about a D or F GPA. that number averages out to less than 2 drinks a day during the week, which i find somewhat low. personally, i had a little over a 3.0 and drank a little more than 3 drinks a week on average. i know that averages can be utterly silly sometimes, so i'm working on my own research.
