    USC National Titles

    USC has long dominated the world of intercollegiate athletics. In fact, it could be argued that Troy was the "Collegiate Athletic Program of the 20th Century." USC men and women have combined for 122 national team titles.

    Trojan men's teams are tops in the nation in NCAA championships with 84 - more than any other university. Overall, USC's men have won 97 national championships.

    USC's women are also a force, with 25 national team titles, all since 1976.

    From 1959-60 to 1984-85, USC put together an amazing streak. In each of those 26 years, at least one Trojan team won a national championship (including five crowns in both 1962-63 and 1976-77).

    USC won the National Collegiate All-Sports Championship - an annual ranking by USA Today (previously The Knoxville Journal) of the country's top men's athletic programs from 1971 to 1994 - 6 times (1971-72-74-75-77-80).

    Here's a list with the coaches of the winning teams.
