Patrick Smith/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- The Super Bowl LII match-up is set; the New England Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship game, advancing to a second consecutive Super Bowl, which will also be the eighth appearance for star quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick.

The Minnesota Vikings were blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-7. Quarterback Nick Foles, who replaced injured Carson Wentz in Game 13, led the NFC Champions to victory and the franchise's third Super Bowl.

The Eagles last Super Bowl appearance was in 2005 against the Patriots. Both teams will meet again for Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Scott Olson/Getty Images(LANSING, Mich.) -- During the days-long sentencing hearing of former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar, Michigan Judge Rosemarie Aquilina has acted as both a psychologist and jurist to the parade of tearful victims telling her stories of horror and sexual abuse.

She has patiently listened and has shown compassion from the bench in Ingham County Circuit Court, often complimenting the bravery of the young girls and women who have come before her to speak. At times, she has encouraged them to be strong and not allow what happened to them to destroy their lives.

When Olympic star Aly Raisman finished giving her statement on Friday and the courtroom broke out in applause, Aquilina was the first to tell her, "That was well deserved."

"I'm an adult. I'm listening. I’m sorry it took this long, but I assure you that all of the words that you and your sister-survivors have said and will say are being considered for sentencing," Aquilina told Raisman.

While Aquilina has yet to say what sentence she will impose on Nassar, she has not been shy about expressing her contempt for him as he sits in the witness box next to her.

On Thursday, she slammed Nassar for trying to weasel out of attending the hearing by writing her a letter saying listening to the victims has been mentally taxing. Aquilina dismissed Nassar's note as "delusional."

"You may find it harsh that you are here listening," she said. "But nothing is as harsh as what your victims endured for thousands of hours at your hands."

Mick Grewal, a Michigan civil and criminal attorney who represents 50 of Nassar's victims in a civil case, called Aquilina "a great judge."

"She's always been very empathetic and sympathetic," Grewal told ABC News. "I think what she's doing here has actually been quite amazing to watch."

Grewal said he's had cases in Aquilina's courtroom and she's "always been fair."

He said that in the Nassar case, it's been very helpful for the victims to be allowed to come to court and face the man who abused them.

"I don't think she's being a therapist. She's not doing it for therapy. She's trying to help them get through this. She's assisting them," Grewal said. "I think a little humanity being shown by Judge Aquilina is going a long way."

Aquilina was elected to the 30th Circuit Court for Ingham County in 2008, after serving as a judge for four years in the 55th District Court in Michigan.

Before becoming a judge, she served for 20 years in the Michigan Army National Guard and made history in 1986 by becoming its first female JAG officer.

She is also the 59-old-old single mother of five children.

An adjunct law professor at Western Michigan University—Thomas M. Cooley Law School and Michigan State University College of Law, Aquilina published her first novel last year, a crime thriller titled "Triple Cross Killer."

ABC News(LANSING, Mich.) -- Olympic gymnastics star Aly Raisman showed up in a Michigan courtroom Friday to face down Larry Nassar, the former doctor who molested her and scores of other elite female athletes.

Raisman, 23, appeared in Ingram County Circuit Court in Lansing and took a seat in the courtroom gallery, just feet away from the Nassar.

Initially, a prosecutor was expected to read a statement from her. But her presence at the hearing indicated she might address Nassar directly.

Nassar pleaded guilty in November to sexually assaulting seven girls, but Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is allowing many more victims to speak in court.

The disgraced doctor has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 125 women and girls in civil lawsuits.

Among the young women who say they were molested by Nassar are Olympic medalists McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas, Jamie Dantzscher and Simone Biles.

Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images for Hilton(NEW YORK) -- USA Gymnastics on Thursday announced that it will cut ties with the Karolyi Ranch, the training ground for the country's elite gymnasts and one of the sites where former team doctor Larry Nassar sexually assaulted gymnasts.

"It has been my intent to terminate this agreement since I began as president and CEO in December," said Kerry Perry. "Our most important priority is our athletes, and their training environment must reflect this."

"We have cancelled next week's training camp for the U.S. women's national team," Perry added. "We are exploring alternative sites to host training activities and camps until a permanent location is determined."

Gold medalist Simone Biles has said in recent days that Nassar abused her at the Karolyi ranch, and questioned why she should return there to train.

"It is impossibly difficult to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused," Biles wrote.

Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in November. More than 150 women have accused him of assault.

Moussa81/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW ORLEANS) -- After his team's loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL playoffs, New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead has learned how "ridiculous" Vikings fans are.

Through Thursday morning, Vikings fans had donated more than $150,000 to Morstead's "What You Give Will Grow" charity, the latest in a string of NFL fan bases showing appreciation for opposing players.

A Vikings fan on Reddit apparently suggested that donations should be made to Morstead's charity out of respect for how the punter gutted through Sunday's game with torn cartilage in his ribs. Morstead even came out on the final play to line up at defensive tackle on the two-point conversion kneel-down after Minnesota's stunning touchdown in the final seconds.

Earlier this week, Morstead said he would return to Minnesota to personally deliver a check to the state's Child Life Program. He now says he will do so during the week before the Super Bowl.

"I'm totally blown away," Morstead said in a video posted to Twitter. "That's a group effort, and it's gonna affect everyone in your community in a positive way."

Similar donation sprees have happened in recent weeks, with Buffalo Bills fans sending more than $300,000 to Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton after he led his team to a win that helped Buffalo earn a playoff berth. Bengals fans later donated money to Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' charity after he eliminated their rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, from the playoffs.

"It's very cool," Morstead said Tuesday. "I wish they were all bitter today because we had won. But it's nice to see people doing nice things."

Tim Clayton/Corbis via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- She was not present in the courtroom but Olympic gymnastics star McKayla Maroney's words rang powerful and clear to the former doctor she says molested her at the age of 13.

Maroney, a multiple Olympic gold medalist and member of the famed "Fierce Five" at the 2012 London Olympic games, allowed her victim impact statement to be read Thursday morning by a prosecutor in Ingram County Circuit Court in Lansing, Michigan, where former USA Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar is facing punishment for molesting multiple young girls and women.

"I was told to trust him, that he would treat my injuries and make it possible for me to achieve my Olympic dreams," she said of Nassar.

"Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment' that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years," Maroney said in her statement. "As it turned out, much to my demise, Dr. Nassar was not a doctor and, in fact, was and forever shall be a child molester, a monster human being. End of story."

She said Nassar began abusing her while she was attending her first National Team training camp in Texas.

"He abused my trust. He abused my body and he left scars on my psyche that may never go away," Maroney said.

 She claimed Nassar sexually abused her repeatedly for years until she left the sport.

"It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated,'" she said. "It happened in London before my team won the gold medal and it happened before I won my silver medal."

She recalled being summoned to Nassar's hotel room one night for treatment.

"I thought I was going to die that night," she said. "Because the National Team training camp did not allow parents to be present, my mom and dad were unable to observe what Nassar was doing, and this has imposed a terrible and undeserved burden of guilt on my whole family."

She asked Judge Rosemarie Aquilina to give Nassar the maximum sentence, which could be up to 120 years in prison.

"Larry Nassar deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison, not only because of what he did to me, my teammates and so many other little girls," Maroney said. "He needs to be behind bars so he will never prey upon another child."

Nassar pleaded guilty in November to sexually assaulting seven girls, but Aquilina is allowing many more victims to speak in court. At least 103 are expected to address the court before the four-day hearing is over on Friday.

The disgraced doctor has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 100 women and girls in civil lawsuits.

Olympic medalists Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Jamie Dantzscher and Simone Biles have all said they've been molested by Nassar.
