The COVID-19 pandemic has wiped the world clean of live sporting events, leaving a massive hole in the lives of sports fans. But networks like ESPN and Fox Sports have found a way to at least momentarily fill that hole by providing replays of classic games.
It’s been a success so far. Over one million people watched throwback college basketball games on CBS on Sunday afternoon, according to Show Buzz Daily.
Many networks are following suit. Sporting News has compiled all the classic games being shown on Sunday to help fans get their sports fix.
