Daily sports TV schedule: What to watch on ESPN, FS1 & other channels for Thursday, March 26

Sporting News

Live sports aren't happening right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean fans have stopped craving sports action. On Sunday, CBS took the timeslot normally allocated to live March Madness games and filled them with classic games from past tournaments.

The games, like the 1992 Elite Eight matchup between Duke and Kentucky, had fans engaged with the past well enough to get the game trending on Twitter. Over one million people watched the throwback college basketball games on CBS on Sunday afternoon, according to Show Buzz Daily.

Many networks are following suit without live games to broadcast or provide commentary on. Sporting News compiled all the classic games across the networks to help fans navigate the nostalgia.
