Utah began competing in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) during the 1897-98 season as the American University Rugby Club. The team changed its name to the "University of Utah" in 1901 after it joined the newly formed Pacific Coast Conference (PCC). In 1915, the university dropped "American" from its name after the United States entered World War I. The Utes competed as an independent school until the PCC began sponsoring football in 1950. Utah became a charter member of the Pac-12 on July 1, 2012.
Athletics at Utah compete against some of the best teams in college sports including Arizona, Oregon, UCLA, and Washington. The Utes' home games are played at Rice-Eccles Stadium, which seats 55,000 people. It is located near Salt Lake City, Utah.

A national championship is awarded to the best college basketball team in the country. The NCAA was founded in June 1945 when the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) held its first annual convention in Chicago. The organization designed by Walter Brown then began to award championships at the division I level. In July 1949, the association announced that it had begun awarding titles to men's teams. A few months later, in January 1950, the first women's title was given out by the NCAA. Since then, every year during March Madness time, you can find people talking about how many rings some school or other school's got.
In addition to the NCAA Division I National Championship, there is another major national championship for college basketball called the Basketball Tournament. This event is known as the "March Madness" tournament because it usually takes place around the time of Easter Sunday each year. The first March Madness tournament was played in 1985 and it consisted of just two games between four teams. By 1993, this had grown to 64 teams competing for a spot in the next season's NCAA tournament.
There are nine national championships. The men's team has won nine national championships (two pre-NCAA victories in 1952 and 1970, and seven NCAA titles in 1972, 1999, 2003, 2006, 2011, 2019, and 2021), while the women's team has won three (in 1991, 1993, and 2004).

UVA has had 9 presidents and 4 chancellors. It's also been referred to as "The College of William & Mary without the bitterness." That says it all really.
There are currently 3,071 students at UVA, with an undergraduate student body made up of 46% male students and 54% female students. The median age of students is 26 years old, but people tend to go to college when they're 18-20 so the average age is likely to be higher.
Virginia is a state in the East Coast region of the United States. It's bordered by Maryland to the west, North Carolina to the northeast, South Carolina to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the southwest.

The Nuggets have only made the playoffs once since moving to Denver in 1976 but were very successful when they were playing before fans knew what hockey was. They have won two NBA championships so far.
When college sports fans think of Denver, most people imagine snowy mountains, not basketball courts. But Denver has a long history of success on the court that extends beyond just one sport. The University of Denver has three men's soccer national titles, most recently in 1995. The school also boasts eight women's soccer titles and one softball title. Baseball is the only other collegiate sport with multiple national championships for DU. They are the first school to win titles in both baseball and soccer in the same year - 1995.
