Fierce competition between NCAA Division I women’s basketball teams like the Villanova Wildcats and Temple Owls is not to be missed.

Originally established by Jon Bon Jovi, The Soul lays claim to several league championships, including the 2017 championship. While the Flyers haven’t won the Stanley Cup since 1975, they frequently dominate the rink as contenders in the NHL finals.
