Let’s dive right in.


College Sports News

While Indiana linebacker Reakwon Jones has played well on the field, the Florida native has been enduring some trying times stuck in Indiana while his family has been at home, braving the storm that was Hurrican Michael. With severely limited phone service, Jones was only able to check in every few hours to see how things were going.

Lauren McCluskey, a track and field athlete at the University of Utah, was found dead on Monday night murdered in a car near campus. The suspect, a 37-year-old registered sex offender named Melvin Rowland, was found dead later in the night of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to police, Rowland forced his way into a church after committing the murder and then took his own life.
