San Diego Toreros Football/Division I-A/Pacific 12 Conference.
Division I Football Championship Subdivision of the NCAA. The Dolphins were members of the Gulf South Conference until it dissolved after the 2011 season. They have since been an independent school.
Jacksonville University began playing football in 1892. Over the years they have earned several awards, most notably being named national college football's #1 Independent School during the 1995 season. They also have had 10 players drafted into the NFL so far. Three of those players have gone on to play in the Pro Bowl: Mike Pyle, Josh Scogin, and Jason Pierre-Paul.
The team's home field is on campus at John E. Smith Sr. Stadium. The stadium is named for JU's first football coach who led the team for nine seasons beginning in 1890. The largest crowd to ever witness a game at JU was when the team played North Carolina A&T State University in 2014. That year's game was held at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte and ended up getting canceled due to rain delays. The final score was 0-0.
There are currently no Dolphins participating in any football leagues or tournaments.
Football/Conference Pioneer Football League San Diego Toreros. The University of San Diego Padres baseball team plays in the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) Division I Pac-12 Conference.
The university was founded in 1855 as a Jesuit school with a small college campus. Since then, the university has grown into a large institution with more than 10,000 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs. It is located in San Diego, California.
The football program began in 1898 with an 11-0 record under John Dutton. The Toreros have won or shared eight conference titles and made nine appearances in the NCAA Tournament. They have won two Division II national championships - 2000 and 2001. The Toreros played in their first Rose Bowl in 2002 but lost to Michigan 17-14.
They returned to the game in 2013 and lost to Michigan 22-19 in what is currently the longest-running annual series between two colleges or universities in the United States. The game has been called the "Granddaddy of 'Em All" because it used to be an all-out war between the schools who would pick their teams by writing them on pieces of paper and throwing them into a bowl.
Division I Football Bowl Subdivision of the NCAA. The Spartans play in the Mountain West Conference.
They are one of six FBS schools in California (University of California, Davis, Cal Poly Pomona, University of Southern California, Stanford University, and University of California, Berkeley). San Jose State has been eligible for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Championship since the 1999 season when it replaced Nevada as the west region champion. They have never played in or won a championship game.
The Spartans' home field is Spartan Stadium on the campus of San Jose State University. The current stadium was built in 1956 and has been renamed Eddy D. Baker Jr. Memorial Stadium in honor of the former San Jose mayor who died while serving as president of his alma mater, South Carolina. It has been called "The Rock" by its fans because of its distinctive rock wall along with other natural rocks used for building materials during construction of the stadium. The team's record attendance at a single game is 102,631 people for their last match of the 2014 season against Utah State.
California Golden Bears football/Division I NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) American football team of the University of California, Berkeley. The Golden Bears compete in the North Division of the Pac-12 Conference.
UC Berkeley has competed in the Pacific Coast League (PCL) since 1896. The PCL was a college athletic conference that included many leading universities across the United States and Canada. In 1959, when most members of the PCL left to join other conferences, UC Berkeley remained as the only member school in the East Bay to do so. Since then, UC Berkeley has been an independent institution.
Currently, the Golden Bears play their home games at Memorial Stadium on the campus of UC Berkeley. The stadium is known for its distinctive architecture with its main stand being called "The Wreck." It was built in 1937 and has been remodeled several times since then. The current capacity of the stadium is 51,000 people.
When UC Berkeley first began playing football, they used to hire local high schools to come play them in what are now known as cross-town games. These games would help build interest in the program and give young players experience playing competitive sports.
