This weekend, the nation’s top college spirit programs are set to take the stage in Orlando, Florida, to compete at the 2022 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship.

The competition among the dance programs is unmatched and we are on the edge of our seats waiting to see what these incredible programs bring to the stage this weekend. Before we find out who our new UDA College National Champions will be, let’s take a look back at some of the top programs and divisions from 2021.

In Division IA, The Ohio State University double titled last year taking home big wins in Pom and Jazz. In both categories, the University of Minnesota took second place followed by the Volunteers from the University of Tennessee in third.

The Buckeyes now hold six UDA College National Championship titles. While they might have taken some time off of the marley earlier this month to cheer on their football team to a win at the Rose Bowl, we know Ohio State is ready to put on two powerful and polished routines at UDA College Nationals. We can’t wait to see if they have what it takes to defend their titles in Pom and Jazz.
