The Vikings compete at the NCAA Division I level in basketball, soccer, volleyball, golf, tennis, softball, indoor and outdoor track and field, and cross country. The university has been a member of the Big Sky Conference since 1996. Along with the other Big Sky football programs, Viking football takes-part in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision, formerly known as NCAA Division I-AA.

Prior to joining Division I, the school won NCAA National Division II Championships in women's volleyball and wrestling.

Portland State's colors are forest green and white, and its mascot is the Viking manifested as "Victor E. Viking".

Football's "Run & Shoot" offense was first implemented at the college level at PSU by then coach Darryl "Mouse" Davis. Davis' quarterback protégées were Lomax and June Jones. Jones, the former head coach at the University of Hawaii and now at SMU, is also a proponent of the Run & Shoot.
