CBS Best in College Sports Finds Stanford's 'Nerd Nation' No. 1 for 2013-2014 in Major Sports: followed by Michigan State, Louisville, Florida State, Baylor, Oregon, Oklahoma State, South Carolina, LSU and UCLA

Stanford's 'Nerd Nation' is No. 1 writes Jon Solomon, National College Football Writer, in reporting on the Best in College Sports award, and in providing some details about the Stanford athletic program.

Stanford had previously won their 20th straight Directors Cup in 2013-14 for best all-around athletic excellence in all sports, including sports that are not considered "major" sports by some, whereas the Best in College Sports concentrates on performance in the major sports of football, basketball, baseball and one "wild card" major sport.

For the top 10 colleges the wild card sport was Softball -- Baylor, Oregon; Women's gymnastics -- Stanford, LSU; Wrestling -- Oklahoma State; Women's soccer -- Florida State, South Carolina, UCLA; Men's soccer -- Michigan State, Louisville.

Without the wild card, Stanford would still have won.
