Arizona’s victory in the Collge World Series leaves the Pac-12 with nine NCAA titles during the 2011-12 academic year — most in the country, and one ahead of the SEC’s eight.
Eight was also the total of runner-up spots that the Pac-12 had in championship games.
All while USC’s football team was on probation. The Trojans’ won titles in men’s water polo and men’s tennis. UCLA was victorious in women’s volleyball. Cal won the men’s and women’s swim titles, Stanford won the women’s soccer and women’s water polo titles and Oregon won women’s indoor track and field.
For the 11th time in the last 12 years, the Pac-12 has led or tied everyone in NCAA championships. The Big Ten won six titles, the ACC four, the Big 12 two and the Big East one. Other conferences accounted for the other six titles.
