A perennial thorn in the side of bigger, badder college sports programs. –
The Spartans play in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC), the Rodney Dangerfield of collegiate league play. However, they use their lack of respect to their advantage. Whether the sport is football or soccer, every year SJSU preys on teams it's not supposed to beat, making them pay for their cocksureness.
A couple of defining snapshots of SJSU's athletic teams can be found in this year's baseball squad, which mounted upset after upset to go to the College World Series, and in this year's football team, which beat up on heavily favored, Rose Bowl-bound Stanford.
The women's golf program at SJSU has been especially good, producing stars such as Patty Sheehan, Pat Hurst, and Juli Inkster. The Spartans also have one of the top-ranked judo programs in the nation. They have won national championships in both sports.
Also in college sports program: Santa Clara Broncos I Stanford Cardinal I All Sports & Recreation
