COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State trustees set a private meeting for Wednesday to talk about the future of coach Urban Meyer as the university seeks to quickly move past a scandal that has consumed the football program for nearly a month. Meyer has been the subject of an investigation into the handling of domestic-abuse allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The investigation of how football coach Urban Meyer handled domestic violence accusations against an assistant has drawn attention to his obligation to report violations of Ohio State's sexual misconduct policy - a type of specificity becoming increasingly common in college athletic contracts. Sports law experts say such provisions clarify expectations for those employees and can make it easier for schools to fire them without compensation if they fall short.

They've tangled on the track a few times, and exchanged the occasional verbal dart - some more playful than others, like when Wickens jokingly locked Rossi in a prison cell during a promotional event last month.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Once they got behind closed doors in the clubhouse, the Houston Astros showered Justin Verlander with champagne. No, it wasn't for helping them avoid a sweep at the Coliseum.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Viktor Hovland's week at the U.S. Amateur went so well that even when he made rare mistakes with drives into hazards, it didn't end up hurting him at all.
