Cal State Fullerton Titans is a group of male and female teams that defend the honor of California State University in intercollegiate competitions. They play in the NCAA Division I. For most sports, they compete in the BWC. Only gymnasts vie for participation in the WAC, while wrestlers compete in the Pac-12.
University students voted the name “Titans.” At first, it was assumed that it would be associated with a character from ancient Greek mythology or the Titan rocket. But then someone joked about the “inter-university elephant race,” which led to the choice of this animal as a talisman. So came Tuffy the Titan, which quickly became popular.
