(the university officially approves both terms). The program participates in the Pacific-12 Conference
and has won 115 team national championships, 93 of which are NCAA

predates the UCLA rivalry by three years. The Notre Dame rivalry stems mainly from the annual football
game played between these two universities and is considered the greatest intersectional rivalry in college football., Pacific-10 Conference
