A game changer for college sports. The NCAA reached a $75-million settlement with dozens of college athletes in a class action suit over head injuries. The settlement requires mandatory regulations coaches must follow if an athlete experience a head injury during a game or practice. It will prevent athletes from returning to a game after a concussion. The money will go to testing and research. A federal judge must approve the deal before it can take effect.
