ESPN FPI predicts every Week 2 game
The first full week of the 2022 college football season is officially in the books, and we have another loaded slate of games on tap for the upcoming weekend. With that in mind, we have decided to take a look at how every Week 2 matchup is expected to play out, according to the ESPN Football Power Index (FPI), a predictive computer model that makes projections for every game.

KU Football QB Jalon Daniels spreading improvement attitude through whole offense
Less than a few hours after KU football’s 56-10 victory over Tennessee Tech last Friday, quarterback Jalon Daniels had already moved on. While he and the rest of his teammates took their gear off, met with coaches and subsequently their respective position groups, Daniels’ attention had already shifted toward West Virginia. Preparation for the Mountaineers’ defense ensued in the hours and days to come.

By the numbers: WVU vs. Kansas
Neal Brown will play his first home game at night as the West Virginia head coach Saturday when the Mountaineers play host to Kansas in a 6 p.m. game at Mountaineer Field. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+'s Big 12 now, and that designation allowed WVU to pick the kickoff time. The school was supposed to play a home night game against Oklahoma in 2020, but that was postponed and later canceled.

Noddy Holder: "Oasis introduced Slade to a new generation”
“[Laughs] The Gallaghers are the last of the great, British, sarcastic, humorous rock stars. That’s gone out of business now. They’ve taken the piss out of everybody and that’s why they’d be a great government PR couple because they don’t give a toss what they say!”

Biden's inflation law offers up to $14,000 for home upgrades. Here's how to qualify. - CBS News
There are two separate rebate programs, according to the NRDC.

The HOMES Rebate Program: This provides more than $4 billion to states to help residents make their entire home more energy-efficient. The program provides rebates based on the energy savings their upgraded home will achieve. For instance, homeowners that make changes that cut their energy usage by at least 35% can get up to $4,000 in rebates. That amount is doubled for low- and middle-income households, who can get up to $8,000 in rebates.

High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act (HEEHRA): This provides rebates for low- and middle-income families to electrify their homes, such as by installing heat pumps or electric clothes dryers. The per household rebate is capped at $14,000, and households can't receive two rebates for the same upgrade. For instance, if they claim a HOMES Rebate program for a heat pump, they can't also get a rebate through the HEEHRA.

Yes, after a long wait and plenty of buzz around who will play members of Marvel's first family (that Doctor Strange 2 cameo is probably a red herring), one of the biggest topics at hand is the already-announced Fantastic Four movie. Will the MCU X-Men reveal happen here? Or is that for Comic-Con 2023?

Aside from that, that same panel will also deliver news about upcoming Lucasfilm (read: Star Wars) and 20th Century Fox projects. We're hoping to finally see that Mandalorian season 3 trailer that leaked in poor quality online. Here, we'll also dig into other news from the weekend, as Disney and Pixar news will break at other times over the next day or two.
