With a membership of 9,000 fans, ZonaZoo is one of the largest student sections in the world. They're also the longest-active student section with a Fancred fan profile.
On February 21, 2015, ZonaZoo shared their entire gameday on their fan profile for ESPN's visit to Tucson. They captured every moment exclusively on Fancred, and we've shared some of our favorite moments below.
