College Sports News

Every year, the Big Ten is considered to be one of the nation’s best football conferences with powerhouses like Ohio State and Michigan. Wisconsin has consistently been one of the better teams in the nation, while Penn State has emerged as a threat after the NCAA sanctions.

Super Bowl Sunday is a mere three days away, and the anticipation could not be built any higher. A rematch, 17 years in the making, will go down on Sunday, February 3.

Entertainment News

Andy King, the producer of the Netflix documentary profiling the failed musical festival Fyre, became an internet sensation for all of the wrong reasons. Normally, a human wouldn’t want to become known for an embarrassing/almost sexual encounter, but King is embracing it in a big way.

Earl Sweatshirt caused some buzz with his fans on Wednesday, January 30. The rapper made save waves by dropping a new project which was an eight-minute short film titled “Nowhere, Nobody.”


Food of the Day

One of the best things at a sporting event is tasting the variety of foods in the concession stand. Often times, you can get rare items that aren’t regularly available. The unfortunate part is that they often come at a hefty price. That isn’t the case at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons and Super Bowl 53, however.
