    College football games, Week 1: Utah aims to make statement as favorite vs. Florida in The Swamp

    None of this is exactly new for Utah. It’s been more than 13 years since the Utes beat then-No. 4 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Utah has played in three of the last four Pac-12 Championship Games, finally breaking through last season for its first Pac-12 title. In what might be the most consequential game of Week 1, No. 7 Utah travels to Florida as somewhat of an accidental national power. Underrated in a disrespected conference, the Utes are no longer a curiosity. Their coach, Kyle Whittingham, has developed a legitimate playoff contender in his 18th season leading the program.

    Excessive heat warning has high school sports programs in preparation mode

    The start of Southern California’s longest and biggest heat wave of the year arrives Wednesday, which means high school sports programs are in preparation mode to protect their athletes while continuing to hold or modify events. In the Los Angeles Unified School District, it will be up to school administrators to make decisions on events and practices while consulting with district personnel, but everyone will be checking the heat index (how it really feels when relative humidity is factored with the air temperature) and receiving information from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. Some events have been canceled, such as a cross-country meet scheduled for Pierce College in Woodland…

    Beijing Considers Ban on Paddle Boarding and Other Water Sports in Certain High-risk Areas

    As the capital’s waterways undergo major projects and improvements, local policymakers are considering a ban on certain water sports as concerns for safety grow, Beijing Daily reports. One of the most conspicuous improvement project has been the renovation of Liangma River, which was recently dubbed the “Seine of Beijing” for the benefit of international onlookers. The revamping of the waterways has given rise to the popularity of various water sports such as paddle boarding and kayaking on some of the inner-city rivers and canals.
