In the 1985 NCAA tournament, Villanova was seeded 8th in the Southeast region. They defeated #9 Dayton, #1 Michigan, #5 Maryland, and #2 North Carolina to make it to the Final Four. They then defeated Memphis State in the semifinals and Georgetown in the finals to win the 1985 championship.
The smallest state is Rhode Island, therefore, Providence.
Conference with Most NCAA Football ChampionshipsHere are some opinions from FAQ Farmers:
- I think the Big8/12 and the SEC are tied at 14 since 1936.
- When did "Alabama" become a conference?
- The Big Ten easily has the most national championships. There are 20 national championships between Ohio State, Michigan, and Minnesota, not even counting the other team's championships in the Big Ten.
- Since 1936, these are the results (include dual and tri championships ... thanks AP) based on what conference teams are in now, which of course is a dumb way to consider it. Texas was a Southwestern Conference member for all but one of their titles, etc.
1. SEC, 20
2. Big Ten, 18
3. Big 12, 17
4. Non-BCS (Notre Dame, Army, BYU, TCU), 13
5. Pac-10 & ACC, 9
6. Big East, 4
** All of the above is incorrect. The six conferences listed are Division I. The NCAA does not award a championship for Division I football.
Travis Grant of Kentucky State (div 2) holds the NCAA all-division record with 4045 points.
