The Rivalry


UCLA and USC have the top two athletic programs in the country. They both rank among the elite in virtually every collegiate sport. UCLA leads the nation with 113 NCAA Team Championships and 134 total National Championships. USC's 104 NCAA and 128 total titles rank third and second, respectively, and the Trojans boast the most NCAA Men's Championships with 84.

In addition to the titles, the two schools have churned out large amounts of professional athletes.  USC has produced the second most MLB players (behind Arizona State) and has the second most in the NFL (behind Notre Dame), while UCLA has sent the second most to the NBA (behind Kentucky).  Through the 2016 Olympics, USC has produced more Olympians (467), medals (308), and gold medals (144) than any other university in the nation.  For their part, UCLA ranks second in Olympians with 429, and third in medals and golds with 262 and 133, respectively.  Their 570 combined Summer Olympic medals would rank 7th on the country list and account for more than a quarter of all US medals, while their 277 combined gold medals would rank 3rd behind only USA and USSR.
