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

On Sunday afternoon, the latest AP Top 25 rankings were released with the Alabama Crimson Tide continuing to hold the top spot in the poll.

Week 5 of the 2018 college football season is in the books, so it is time to take a look at the new Amway Coaches Poll. The Coaches Poll, which is not part of the College Football Playoff selection committee’s formula to determine the four teams that will compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship, is voted on by 65 FBS head coaches.

Entertainment News

Doctors tell us to watch less TV to not let it rot our brains, but does that stop us from watching our favorite shows? Nope! We perfectly find the colors on a TV satisfying when scrambling our brains. And it’s advancing onto our computer screens. No matter how many people say it’s going to rot our brains, we will continue to find out who died, who is dating who, and what is the last episode going to tell us about the next season? We have all of these questions, and the only way to answer it is to keep watching our favorite shows. Here are our picks for the top ten best TV shows of all time.
