ASU students definitely agree that football is the primary sport that’s followed and talked about here. While ASU football doesn't always have a great season, followers are still faithful and full of spirit. Baseball and basketball can be pretty popular among students as well. The students who are into other sports here usually either participate or know someone on a team. There are also many opportunities for athletes who do not have the time or ability to participate in varsity sports. While intramural and club sports are not as popular as the varsity sports, there is still an impressive number of students who participate in them. There are classic sports like soccer, lacrosse, and volleyball, as well as specialty sports like martial arts and different forms of dance. The hip-hop coalition is widely known at ASU and provides an upbeat, fast, and fun atmosphere for both men and women that are into dancing. Of the many students at ASU and the great number of hot bodies here, it’s obvious that a good number of them find something at this school to keep them in shape.
ASU pride and support are highly visible, as demonstrated by the often intimidating student turnout for football and basketball events in particular. The biggest, and most heated, game of the year is the football game between ASU and University of Arizona (U of A), played late in the season. Even when the teams meet in Tucson, home of the Wildcats, many students make the trip to show their support. The Sun Devil/Wildcat rivalry is the most storied in the state and among the most infamous in the region. If you love sports, there is surely a team at ASU that will fit your interest.
