Wolverines vs. Huskies live stream: Watch the College Football Playoff

The University of Washington Huskies face the University of Michigan Wolverines in this year’s College Football Playoff Championship. Both teams are undefeated, but both had close wins in the playoff semi finals, which speaks to the level of skill displayed across NCAA football this year. Since 1953, the Huskies and the Wolverines have met 13 times. The Wolverines have won eight of those matchups. Will the Huskies close the gap, or will the Wolverines widen it?

The College Football Playoff Championship is at 7:30 p.m. ET today, and it will be broadcast on ESPN. Here are some of the best ways to live stream the game online.

Our recommendation for watching tonight’s game is Sling TV. That’s because Sling TV currently has the best deal we’ve ever seen from them. You can get Sling TV Orange, the package that contains all of the ESPN channels, for just $15 right now, down from $40. That’s a $25 discount on your first month. Unfortunately there is no Sling TV free trial, but this is pretty darn close.

While we recommend shelling out $15 for a month of Sling TV, there are a few ways to watch the game online completely free. The game is on ESPN, and most of the online cable replacing services have it. One of the big ones is YouTube TV, which currently has a 21-day free trial. So if you sign up for YouTube TV right now, you can watch this game entirely free and cancel right afterward. We recommend Sling TV over YouTube TV overall because it’s cheaper and more customizable, but if all you care about is this one game, grab the free trial.

Watch Tottenham vs. West Brom: Live Stream Premier League Soccer
A pint of beer and a soccer match.

At 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT, Tottenham vs. West Brom kicks off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as part of the Premier League campaign for the two sides. It's an early morning fixture to catch up on with Tottenham Hotspur hoping to creep up the table to qualify for the Europa League at the end of the season and West Brom hoping to desperately claw its way back from the relegation zone. You can watch the match live via NBC's streaming platform, Peacock Premium, and we've got all the info on how to do so for free.

With one game in hand, Spurs fans are understandably hopeful that they can finish higher up the table than their current sixth place. They're only two points behind London rivals, West Ham, with that extra game to play potentially making all the difference there. In contrast, things aren't looking good for West Brom at all. The Midlands-based side has only gained 12 points all season and they've played two extra games to Fulham who are two points ahead and one place above them in the league table. The side will have to go some way to ensuring they aren't relegated this season and we're not convinced they will fare well against Tottenham Hotspur.

TV may not be peaking quite the way it was a few years back, but there are still more than enough shows out there to keep you busy. After Netflix emerged on the scene and revolutionized how we all watched TV, it was joined by a huge swath of competitors determined to take advantage of the streaming boom. All of those competitors have great stuff to watch, but Netflix is still many people's hub for all things TV.

Thankfully, that's where this list comes in. We've compiled a rundown of what to watch on Netflix, and these Netflix shows should add up to days and days of endless binging.

The 9 best cigar cutters in 2024, tested and chosen by experts
Close-up of hands cutting a cigar with a cigar cutter.

Even if you've never enjoyed a cigar before, besides having one of the best lighters to get started, you'll also need a cigar cutter. You don't want to use scissors, bite off the end, or use a knife because that could damage the wrapper and the head of the cigar. Since the wrapper -- the outer shell around the tobacco, not the cellophane -- is responsible for most of the flavor you'll experience during your smoke, and you want it to remain intact. It can also be pretty annoying when you're trying to smoke, and the head of the wrapper is peeling off. But with one of the best cigar cutters, you can make a clean cut, which will never be a problem.

The first thing to note is that there are different cigar cuts. You can make a straight cut or a v-cut or use a punch, which basically punches a small hole in the head of the cigar to let the smoke and air through. There are also different tools to achieve these cuts, from cigar scissors to tabletop and hand cutters. Ultimately, the proper cut and the right tool for you will come down to personal preference. I prefer a straight cut, but not everyone will agree, and that's okay. Even so, sometimes you have to use another type of cut depending on the size and shape of the cigar, or you may be limited by what kind of tool you have on hand.
