Watch here for live Alabama Senate special election results and exit polls Republican Roy Moore, the embattled former chief justice on the state's supreme court, and Democrat Doug Jones, a widely respected former U.S. attorney, are running for Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat today in a special election that's being watched closely across the country.

Utah athletic director Chris Hill opened his front door and was greeted by his wife, Kathy, bubbling over with excitement. “Red alert,” she screamed. “Urban’s coming! Urban’s coming!” Hill was only mildly surprised by the news, having interview Urban Meyer for the Utes’ coaching vacancy earlier in the day at the Denver Airport. The meeting went well, so well that Hill hoped Meyer would fly to Salt Lake City to meet the board of trustees and finalize the deal. Meyer pushed back. He wanted to attend an event in New York City, delaying his campus visit by several days and lending uncertainty to the process.

The prominent Manhattan surgeon found dead in his Upper East Side apartment Sunday with a knife sticking out of his chest was sued last year by a former Giants running back who claimed the doctor ended his football career.
