Happy Wednesday, BBN!

Will Levis has been named the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, as announced by head coach Mike Vrabel.

Levis, the 33rd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, will continue as the starter after filling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill in recent games against Atlanta and Pittsburgh.

Despite Tannehill’s potential return as a backup, Vrabel has placed his confidence in Levis, who has impressed with 500 passing yards, four touchdowns, and a 96.4 rating over his first two starts.

We couldn’t be happier for former Cat Will Levis!

In other news, Kentucky Basketball is finally updating its courts!

It’s a pretty sweet design that shows off the outline of the state, and it looks like they listened to fans and finally got rid of those hideous and huge “Rupp Arena at Central Bank” stickers on the sides, with a much better-sized shoutout.

Check out the photo below.
