OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi's new football coach, Matt Luke, says he now has his dream job, even if it comes during very difficult circumstances. The 40-year-old has been named the team's interim head coach for the 2017 after Hugh Freeze resigned in disgrace last week because of personal misconduct.
CHICAGO (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded Southeastern Conference. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already. The SEC dominated the Big Ten the last two seasons, when it won six of the eight meetings between them. Meyer says he no longer sees disrespect for the Big Ten when it comes to recruiting.
