Harris Interactive - Favorite Sports According to Harris Interactive, here are Americans' favorite sports, in order. 1. Pro Football 2. Baseball (MLB) 3. College football 4. Auto Racing 5. Men's College basketball 6. Hockey 7. Pro basketball (NBA) 8. Men's Golf 9. Boxing 10. Soccer Baseball barely beat CFB, and baseball continues a slide. NFL continues to widen its lead. NASCAR had the second highest jump in percentage of popularity. I am pleased to say Hockey beat the NBA (Go Predators). Tennis has slipped even below soccer, which usually beats out only horse racing and bowling. Men's college hoops slid slightly. Thoughts? Surprises? I personally think one thing that may be off a bit is now, they split soccer, tennis, golf, and college basketball into men's and women's categories. That may explain why college bball and soccer lost popularity points.
