It sounds like the NCAA is preparing for March Madness to be held in a bubble.
According to trademark attorney Josh Gerben, the NCAA has filed a trademark application for “Battle in the Bubble.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The trademark might apply to several different sports, but it seems like basketball is the main one. You can watch Gerben break it down below.

Battle in the Bubble? Yeah, I think I can get behind that name. We’re living in a crazy time as we fight coronavirus. We might as well have some fun with the names.
If the NCAA goes with a bubble system for March Madness, then I’m all in on calling it Battle in the Bubble. Why not?
I also love the fact the NCAA might have a bubble system for the tournament. That’s honestly going to be very cool.
A total of 68 teams in one or two locations playing March Madness would be lit as all hell. Imagine the atmosphere that would create for the players and coaches.
All that matters at the end of the day is that games happen. I fully support anything that accomplishes that objective.
I’m also 100% buying some Battle in the Bubble gear the moment it goes on sale. You can bet on that.
