Live sports isn't happening right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean fans have stopped wanting sports action. On Sunday, CBS took the normally allotted time slot for the March Madness games live and filled them with classic games from past tournaments.
The games, like the 1992 Elite Eight showdown between Duke and Kentucky, got fans involved with the past well enough that the game was trending on Twitter. More than a million people watched college basketball games on CBS on Sunday afternoon, according to Show Buzz Daily.
Many networks are following suit without live games to stream or comment. Sporting News compiled all the classic games on the networks to help fans navigate nostalgia.
