Embattled Michigan AD Brandon resigns

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon resigned Friday, setting the stage for new leadership at the top of one of the nation's most prominent athletic departments.

Brandon's departure comes amid a dismal football season and concerns over the school's handling of everything from its concussion protocol to student seating at games. Football coach Brady Hoke's future has been in doubt for a while thanks to his team's lack of progress, but Brandon also became a target of disgruntled fans and students.

University President Mark Schlissel, who officially took over in September, said at a mid-October regents' meeting that he wanted to do an in-depth review of Michigan athletics. Displeasure with Brandon and Hoke was already mounting at that point, with the football team struggling and the department still being criticized for its handling of quarterback Shane Morris' head injury in a Sept. 27 game against Minnesota.

Auburn vs. Ole Miss in critical matchup

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Auburn and Mississippi spent the week dismissing their standing in the first College Football Playoff rankings as mostly irrelevant.

QBs in spotlight for TCU, West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Most improved is a label that certainly fit quarterbacks Clint Trickett of West Virginia and Trevone Boykin of TCU.

A year ago, Trickett looked lost at times trying to run the Mountaineers' offense after transferring from Florida State. Boykin was relegated to wide receiver until relieving injured quarterback Casey Pachall.
