Does Big-Time Success in Football or Basketball Affect SAT Scores?
Tucker, Irvin B., III; Amato, Louis
Economics of Education Review, v12 n2 p177-81 1993
Examines the effects of academics and athletics (including football and basketball variables) on first-year college students' Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores at U.S. universities engaged in big-time intercollegiate sports. Academic variables rather than athletic success variables determine the level of average first-year students' SAT scores, but a highly ranked football team on campus boosts average SAT scores over time.
