The NCAABowling Championship is a sanctioned women's championship in college athletics. Unlike other NCAA sports, only one championship is held each season with teams from Division I, Division II, and Division III competing together. It was first held in April of 2004. The collegiate bowling season runs during the winter, and the championship is typically held each April. Currently, the format consists of 8 teams playing in a double elimination-style tournament.
^Nebraska had to win two best-of-seven matchups against Central Missouri (who advanced to the finals after going undefeated in Friday's double elimination format) to win the first NCAA bowling title. Nebraska won the first match 4-2 (183-176, 168-200, 195-170, 212-212 (60-40), 168-203, 246-195) to force the winner-take-all match. 
^Under the same double elimination format used in 2004, Nebraska went undefeated, winning three matches on Friday, meaning they only had to win once (out of a possible two best-of-seven matches) against Central Missouri to win the NCAA Bowling Championship. Nebraska needed only one best-of-seven match-up to win their second straight NCAA Bowling title.
^Fairleigh Dickinson (only team undefeated, 3-0 after Friday's double elimination format) needed only one best-of-seven match (out of a possible two matches) to defeat Alabama A&M.
^The double elimination format was tweaked in 2007 and subsequently every NCAA Bowling Championships have used this format since. Instead of one double elimination bracket, there was two double elimination brackets and the winners of those brackets advanced to the final. In 2007, Vanderbilt and Maryland Eastern-Shore won two matches to advance to the semifinals, where both teams only needed to win one match (out of a possible two matches) to advance to the final. Both teams only needed one match to advance to the best-of-seven finals match.
