Stanford won its first national championship in 1925 by capturing the NCAA title in men’s track and field. A year later, legendary coach Pop Warner’s football team was declared national champion in several rankings after compiling a 10-0-1 record and tying Alabama in the Rose Bowl, 7-7.

Stanford University has experienced signficant change in the years since, but this aspect of Stanford life remains constant: Stanford Cardinal teams win championships on a regular basis. Stanford teams have won over 100 NCAA Championships and 120 total national championships overall. No other school has won more than Stanford’s more than 425 individual national titles.

Perhaps the most important aspect of Stanford’s athletics program is that its success serves to validate the “scholar-athlete” approach to intercollegiate athletics competition. The numerous accomplishments of Stanford scholar-athletes are a powerful example of how elite sports and serious scholarship can indeed be complementary endeavors. Stanford scholar-athletes are champions in many ways.
