What’s next for the NCAA and NIL? – AP Top 25 Podcast

The college football offseason is here but there is still plenty of news in college sports. This week attention turns to the NCAA convention where the hot topic will be name, image and likeness.

What if any news could come out of the NCAA convention this week in Southern California?

Nicole Auerbach from The Athletic joins AP’s Ralph Russo to talk about NCAA policy and the news of the week closer to the field.

Will there be anyone left at LSU to defend the Tigers’ national
championship after a mass exodus of players and key assistant coaches?

Miami might have found a transfer quarterback to help turnaround its offense.

And where does Justin Fuente stand at Virginia Tech after he talked to Baylor about its job opening?
