College Sports News

The 2018-19 college basketball season is winding down with March Madness around the corner, and on Monday, March 11 the Associated Press announced its latest AP Top 25 poll for Week 19. This week, Kansas, Duke, and Tennessee remain atop the poll. Defending national champion Villanova, meanwhile, has crashed out of the rankings.

College football is the most exciting sport in the country due to the explosive nature of the game. The fan bases are also a big part of the game’s excitement with their deafening crowd noises and cheers. Some fans go a little further than others by getting themselves thrown out of the game.
