Wrestling dates to 1968 at Cal State Fullerton. The Titans never won a team championship but boast 31 conference champions, 12 Div. I and 3 Div. II All-Americans and 87 NCAA Div. I national qualifiers including at least one in each of the last 26 seasons. Titan Wrestling competed in Division I in the PAC-10 conference, as the Big West Conference did not support wrestling. Cal State Fullerton's intercollegiate wrestling program was discontinued after 43 years at the conclusion of the 2010-11 season. The program was given the opportunity to continue operating if it could fund its own annual budget. An action was considered at the end of the 2009-10 season, an extensive fund-raising campaign for the 2010-11 season came up short of the $196,145 cash deposited goal by the Aug. 2 deadline.[16] Two former Titan wrestler's include current UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw and former Pride/Strikeforce/UFC Champion Dan Henderson


They have 13 national championships in eight different sports, a portion of which were won in the College Division of the NCAA (now known as Division I): 1970, Women's Basketball (CIAW); 1971, 1972, 1974 Men's Gymnastics; 1971 Cross country team; 1973 Women's Fencing; 1989, Men's Bowling; 1979, Women's Gymnastics; 1979, 1984, 1995, 2004 Baseball; 1986; Softball.

Because of the proximity to Long Beach State, the schools are considered rivals. The rivalry is especially heated when it comes to baseball with Long Beach State also having a competitive college baseball program. This of one of few sports where at least two teams from the Big West Conference appear in the NCAA national tournament. Fullerton also has an intense rivalry with Big West stablemate UC Irvine; the two are the only Orange County schools in Division I.
