STACK partnered with Niche.com to rank the 50 best colleges for male athletes. A high ranking indicates the school does well in NCAA tournaments, has enthusiastic fans and provides support for its athletes both on and off the field. Check out Niche.com for a complete description of the methodology.
This year, the University of Florida tops the lists for both male athletes and student-athletes overall, thanks in large part to its strong history of on-field performance. Since the Southeastern Conference began in 1933, Florida has won 221 SEC team championships, more than any other school in the conference. The men's teams have won 16 national championships; and in 2007, Florida became the only D-I school to hold both the football and men's basketball NCAA championships at the same time.
