Wake up, it’s Wednesday, November 7 and we are midway through the week. 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

The Maxwell Football Club have announced their outstanding performers for Week 10 of the 2018 college football season. On Tuesday, November 6, the Maxwell Award Player of the Week and Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week have been announced. The Player of the Week is awarded to the best overall performance on offense, defense or special teams, while the Bednarik Award is given for defensive excellence.

The Kansas football program could have some excitement coming its way. According to reports, former head coach Les Miles is quickly emerging as a frontrunner for the Jayhawks’ head coaching vacancy. The news comes after Kansas announced they would not retain coach David Beaty following the season.

Entertainment & Lifestyle

Tuesday was the 2018 midterm elections! Normally, it’s the presidential election when we’d expect to see many famous people campaigning–but this time is different. An energized and polarized electorate is fired up– and celebrities are playing a big part, both at campaign rallies and on social media, to get people engaged.

Despite the fact that the pair has an undeniable, underlying mutual respect for each other (the fact that they earned each other a nine-digit paycheck certainly helps) Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather still continue to trade shots at one another here and there. That is no different with Mayweather’s upcoming fight against 20-year-old Tenshin Nakusawa around the corner.
