National championships by the numbers

USA TODAY Sports

UCLA won the NCAA baseball national championship on Tuesday night, the 109th team national championship in school history, which is the most all time. They defeated Mississippi State, which has zero team national championships.

With the win, UCLA joins a select group to win a national championship in football, men's basketball and baseball, arguably the three biggest college sports.

Here's a breakdown of the numbers and some select company.

At least one title in football, men's basketball and baseball

UCLA, Stanford, Cal, Michigan, Ohio State

At least one title in football and men's basketball

UCLA, Stanford, Cal, U-M, Ohio State, Michigan State, Florida, Maryland, Syracuse

Multiple football and men's basketball titles

MSU, Florida

At least one title in football and baseball

UCLA, Stanford, Cal, U-M, Ohio State, USC, LSU, Texas, Miami (FL), Minnesota, Oklahoma, Georgia

Multiple football and baseball titles

U-M, Stanford, USC, Texas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Miami (FL), LSU

At least one title in men's basketball and baseball

UCLA, Stanford, Cal, U-M, Ohio State, Arizona, Holy Cross, Oklahoma State

Multiple men's basketball and baseball titles

No one

At least one title in football, men's basketball, baseball and ice hockey

U-M

At least one title in football, men's basketball and ice hockey

MSU, U-M

Multiple titles in football, men's basketball and ice hockey

MSU

Don't sleep on the mitten. As for those last two groups, MSU was closest to joining U-M (as well as the first group) by reaching the semifinals of the 1954 College World Series. U-M was close to joining MSU in the last group (and the empty multi mbb/base group) with men's hoops national championship game losses in 1992, 1993 and 2013.

There are some unrecognized/unclaimed football championships that would add some schools to the lists, such as Wisconsin in 1942.

Admittedly, there isn't a large pool for hockey championships, but it's certainly the third-biggest sport at U-M and MSU.
