Saturday's Big Ten Football Championship was not only one for the ages, but one for the record books at Penn State as it marked the 100th conference title for the Nittany Lions since joining play in 1992. Only Penn State, Michigan and Ohio State have at least 100 Big Ten titles in that span.

Leading the way for the Blue and White in terms of conference titles are women's soccer with 18 total championships (3rd best overall in the B1G) and women's volleyball with 16 total titles (5th best overall in the B1G). Field hockey has 11 titles, wrestling has five of the last six conference championships and football has four total titles.

Conference championships often begs the question of where PSU stands in terms of NCAA national titles. The Nittany Lions lead all Big Ten member schools with 29 national titles since partially joining the conference in 1992. Maryland is second with 21 followed by Nebraska and Ohio State with 13 each.

Since 2007 Penn State leads all D1 athletic programs nationally with 18 total NCAA championships. The Nittany Lions have won at least one national title every year since 2007 across women's and men's volleyball, wrestling, men's gymnastics, men's and women's fencing, and women's soccer. In fact, Penn State has more total national titles since joining the Big Ten than Ohio State has in its entire history as a program.
