I recall this may have been discussed before but I'm not finding it by search here or on web.

Is Syracuse the only city to have won a college basketball National Championship, college football National Championship, and an NBA Championship?

I think it is, but confirming.

If you count Villanova’s 2009 FCS aka 1-AA National championship then Philadelphia would be an answer as well.

That is a FCStitle though.

It's a stretch to say Nova is a Philly school. It's 18 miles from Center City Philadelphia and a 30 minute drive at best. It's also in a different county. However, you could make the case for Philly using Penn, which claims football national championships in 1894,1895, 1897, 1904, 1907, 1908 & 1924. LaSalle provides a basketball title (1954).

I dunno man these championship parades through downtown Philly would indicate otherwise.
Let's just put it this way: I don't remember Nova being part of the parlay.
