Yesterday’s women’s track title was the 46th official NCAA team championship in University of Arkansas history (remember that D-I football has never been an official NCAA championship sport and thus doesn’t count, even 1964).
That puts UA in 7th place on the list, one behind our old puke orange friends from Austin. It also solidifies our place as the most national titles in the SEC. LSU has 43 (coincidentally, both Arkansas and LSU have had national titles taken away by the NCAA, two for us, one for them). If we hadn’t gotten dinged for Lance Brauman, we’d be sixth on the list.
Stanford 123 (67 men, 56 women)
UCLA 118 (75 men, 43 women)
USC 107 (85 men, 22 women)
Oklahoma State 52 (52 men, 0 women)
Penn State 51 (27 men, 11 women, 13 co-ed)
Texass 47 (24 men, 23 women)
Arkansas 46 (42 men, 4 women)
North Carolina 44 (13 men, 31 women)
LSU 43 (18 men, 25 women)
California 38 (29 men, 9 women)
Co-ed sports include fencing, rifle and skiing, in case you were wondering.
Florida is tied for 11th with Michigan with 36. Georgia has 31, Tennessee has 16.
You may have observed the absence of either of the schools from the not so great state of Alabummer. Again, FBS football is not an official championship sport so Bama’s 732 self-claimed-MNCs don’t count.
Okie Lite is so high largely because of wrestling, with 34 titles. OSU wrestling is tied with Kenyon College swimming for the most titles by a school in a single sport. Arkansas is 10th on the single-sport list with 20 men’s indoor track titles.
