A new week kicks off with Monday, Aug. 6 as we near closer to the start of the college football season. College life can be busy, so at times it can be tough to keep up with the daily news cycle. That’s why we bring you Campus Connect, where you can catch the latest news in college sports and entertainment to keep on top of the buzz that everyone on campus will be talking about.

What happened last night? What events are coming up today? We have you covered with all of that and more.

Let’s dive right in.

College Sports News

Boston College football coach Steve Addazio is speaking out about the Zach Smith situation. After the wide receivers coach was fired by Ohio State when domestic violence allegations surfaced, Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer said that he had no previous knowledge. That led to trouble when college football writer Brett McMurphy unveiled a bombshell that claims Meyer had known of the allegations.

College football is almost upon us, and it’s going to be an incredible year. As we all know, every game can have massive implications for the playoffs. Some of these games are built up during the year, as an emerging powerhouse takes on the conference juggernaut. But others, you know are going to be a massive game, like the Iron Bowl. Let’s take a look at the top five must-watch games of the 2018 season.

You hear us saying time and time again that the Pac-12 is always delivering. That is the case once again with Blakely Smith, a student at Arizona State who aims to be a future attorney. She’s currently a — you guessed it! — model, with a rapidly growing following on Instagram.

Entertainment News

If you’re a fan of Tekken 7, Sunday was a great day. We got to witness the Top 8 at EVO 2018 play out, which included a top three run from American legend Terrelle “Lil Majin” Jackson. The day also included announcements about new DLC for the game which will be bringing a taste of the AMC hit show The Walking Dead to the Tekken universe.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were enjoying a beautiful vacation in Bali, but that was interrupted early Sunday when a 6.9 magnitude earthquake rocked the area. Three people were killed in the earthquake which struck 50 miles east of Bali. Despite being 50 miles away, the tremors rocked the area where Teigen was staying.
