About The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup

The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup, presented annually by the nation’s athletics directors, recognizes the schools with the best overall sports performances in an academic year. Points are awarded based on finishes and participation in 20 NCAA Division I sports. Stanford received its 21st consecutive Directors’ Cup at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) convention earlier this month.

UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley says:

“There were so many great performances by the Gators this season. Gymnastics and softball repeated as national champions and many other Florida teams were challenging for the top spot. Competing at this level is the result of hard work and effort by the Gators and their coaches. We certainly appreciate the passion and teamwork displayed by the Gators throughout this season.”
