1). Pro Football Up 6%
2). Pro Baseball Down 8%
3). College Football Up 2%
4). Auto Racing Up 5%
5). Hockey Up 3%

If you're wondering about the next 5,it goes in order of:

Pro Basketball
College Basketball
Men's Golf
Men's Soccer
Horse Racing

Couple things you might be wondering. Boxing ranked #14 followed by Women's College Basketball, Womens' Soccer finished last behind Women's Pro Basketball. Real question there is who really watches women's pro basketball over soccer, come on. Mixed Martial Arts, aka UFC wasn't included because when this study was started in 1985 the sport didn't really exist.
