Football fanatics hunker down on New Year's Day for a nonstop barrage of bowl games. College basketball buffs have their feast days this Thursday and Friday (March 18 and 19) as CBS begins its coverage of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Over those two days, CBS will devote 18 head-spinning, dribble-intensive hours to 32 first-round games (noon-5 p.m. and 8 p.m.-midnight, both days). Stockpile the snack foods and unplug the phone—it's marathon time!
