College Baseball Teams with the Most Men’s College World Series Titles

The college baseball teams with the most Men’s College World Series Titles are a fairly short list. No one is really close to USC. Here’s the list for you. LSU added to their total in 2023 breaking the tie with Texas for second place.

  • USC – 12
  • LSU – 7
  • Texas – 6
  • Arizona State – 5
  • Arizona, Cal State Fullerton, and Miami – 4
  • Minnesota and Oregon State – 3
  • Vandy, Stanford, South Carolina, Michigan, California, and Oklahoma – 2

The University of Kentucky who has been having one of the program’s best seasons in 2024 is the only SEC team to not have ever played in the CWS.
