The Longhorns have won six NCAA baseball national championships (1949, 1950, 1975, 1983, 2002, 2005), tying LSU for second place and trailing Southern California's total of 12. They have also finished second in the College World Series (CWS) Championship Game or Championship Series on six other occasions (1953, 1984, 1985, 1989, 2004).
Texas has been one of only four schools to win the CWS after playing in a regional. The others are USC, Florida, and Oklahoma.
In addition to its six NCAA titles, Texas has five other national championship claims: 1949 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA); 1975 North American Soccer League (NASL); 1976 North American Soccer League; 1983 United States Baseball Federation (USFB); and 2001 International University Sports Association (IUSA).
Of those eight titles, seven were awarded by organizations other than the NCAAs or NCAA Division I FCS.
The eighth title was granted by the NCAAs after an investigation revealed that Texas had recruited players who attended school outside of the United States. A committee concluded that there was sufficient evidence to show that several players on Larry Jones' 1973 team had resided in Mexico while attending high school there, allowing them to be eligible to play for the Longhorns. The NSCAA removed all awards from the list of current members, but it was not until years later that the organization officially ended its relationship with Texas.
47. Longhorn sports teams have won a total of 56 national titles, 47 of which have been NCAA National Championships. The other nine are from various non-NCAA organizations or events.

The University of Arizona's baseball team is a member of the Pacific Coast League (PCL). The Wildcats play their home games at Fred Lawrence Whitson Stadium in Tucson, Arizona. Their head coach is Andy Lopez, who has led them to victory in two consecutive College World Series.
With an average attendance of 9,867 per game, the Wildcats are ranked No. 1 in the latest Baseball America poll. UA ranks first in the PCL with a 3.7 wins-per-game average and has advanced to the postseason in each of the last nine seasons. As a result, they have won three consecutive national championships (2012-2014).
The University of Arizona's baseball program was established in 1901. They became a part of the newly formed Pac-12 Conference in 2013. The Wildcats' eight national titles are the most of any school outside of the eight major league teams. They are also the only school from outside the eight major leagues to win the title.

A champion is defined as the team that finishes highest in the final National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Baseball Championship Standings. If two or more teams are tied, a playoff system is used to determine the champion.
USC's first national title came in 1885 when they were known as the New York College of Pharmacy. The team was made up of students, faculty members, and staff members who were all given equal credit for contributions to the game. After one season, the school changed its name to the New York State College of Pharmacy. In 1889, the school became part of the new Union College system along with other colleges including Adelphi, Columbia, Cornell, and Princeton. In 1903, Union discontinued its baseball program due to financial difficulties. That same year, the college's board of directors decided to bring back baseball as an independent program. Thus, USC began its modern era of play on April 13, 1903, with a win over Rutgers College by a score of 26-6.
