The World of  CA College Sports

Look Out for the Bruins, Trojans, and Aztecs

 

California is known for many things: wine regions, celebrities, traffic, amusement parks, and sunny beaches. But, for sports fans, it’s home to some of the most exciting college sports in the nation. Whether it was UCLA’s historic basketball domination of the 60s and 70s, or USC football’s slew of conference titles and NFL draft picks during the 2000s, California’s college sports landscape is rich in history, and continues to make it’s mark.

Head into California’s northern regions and you’ll find cities like Menlo Park, Oakland, and San Francisco, each home to, or nearby, schools like Stanford, San Francisco, and Cal – all universities with fine academic standards, but who’ve also found a way to indelibly mark the college sports landscape for the better.

Fielding competitive teams in nearly all the major sports, these universities maintain a fierce, competitive spirit, while consistently striving to achieve greatness. Many California travelers enjoy a wide range of sporting events throughout the year. The winter and early spring months yield intense basketball action, and exciting slugfests of college baseball – there’s nothing quite like the “ping” of the bats and the soar of the ball during college baseball season.

The summer and fall bring college football to the forefront. Cal, Stanford, UCLA, and USC all compete within the Pac-12 Conference, and have each seen their share of success on the gridiron. With beautiful San Diego as it’s backdrop, San Diego State University competes in the Mountain West Conference, and fields teams in nearly every sport.

Whatever time of year you choose to travel, be sure to enjoy the pageantry and excitement of California college sports.
