Let’s dive right in.

College Sports News

This week in College Basketball, we’ve seen a good amount of change in the top 10, and there are some serious squads that we as fans need to take seriously. We have seen Kentucky retake their reigns in the SEC with a dominant and late second-half dynamo against SEC Rival Florida, and Michigan State, who is without their primed leader in Joshua Langford, struggled offensively and dropped an egg in overtime to unranked Indiana led by NBA prospect Romeo Langford.

Super Bowl 53 took place Sunday, February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams battled it out for the Lombardi Trophy with Tom Brady and company coming away with a victory for the sixth championship in franchise history.

Entertainment News

Demi Lovato has deleted Twitter. The pop star, who made headlines in 2018 after an opioid overdose and stint in rehab, caused a stir on social media after she took a shot at rap star 21 Savage, who was obtained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a targeted sting on Sunday, February 3 in Atlanta, Georgia.

UFC 235 is a month away, but that hasn’t stopped Kamaru Usman and Ben Askren from exchanging verbal jabs. The two top welterweights are set to compete on the card, though they will be against different opponents.
