SAN DIEGO (AP) — Fans at the Holiday Bowl in San Diego will be asked to do the “Iowa Wave” at the end of the first quarter of the game between No. 19 Iowa and No. 22 USC on Dec. 27. The wave will be directed at patients in a children’s hospital in Iowa City as well as representatives from two children’s hospitals in Southern California who will be at the game.

MLB NEWS

UNDATED (AP) — Reliever Joe Smith and the Houston Astros have agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract.

The 35-year-old Smith is 6-1 with a 3.06 ERA in 84 appearances during his two seasons with the Astros. He missed the beginning of last season recovering from Achilles tendon surgery before returning in July and posting a 1.80 ERA in 28 regular-season appearances.

Smith didn’t allow a run in eight of his 10 postseason appearances.

— Free-agent outfielder Avisaíl García has finalized a two-year, $20 million contract with the Brewers, a deal that includes a $10 million club option for 2022. García batted .282 with a career-high 20 home runs and 72 RBIs for the Rays last season.

— The Cardinals have announced the signing of left-hander Kwang Hyun Kim to a two-year contract. The 31-year-old South Korean went 17-6 with a 2.51 ERA in 190 1/3 innings last season for the SK Wyverns.

— The Tigers are retiring Lou Whitaker’s No. 1 this coming season. Whitaker will become the ninth Tiger to have his number retired by the team, and the first to be so honored without being inducted into the Hall of Fame.  He was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1978, went to five straight All-Star games, won three Gold Gloves and compiled a .276 average with 244 home runs and 1,084 RBIs in a 19-year career spent entirely with Detroit.

NFL NEWS

UNDATED (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers are sticking with Devlin “Duck” Hodges as their starting quarterback.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says Hodges will start Sunday against the Jets despite throwing four interceptions in Pittsburgh’s last game, a 17-10 loss to Buffalo over the weekend. Pittsburgh is 3-1 this season when Hodges starts and 4-2 when he plays.

Tomlin has started Hodges and Mason Rudolph since Ben Roethlisberger (RAWTH’-lihs-bur-gur) suffered a season-ending elbow injury in Week 2. Hodges has completed 67.8% of his passes for 884 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions.

In other NFL news:

— The Cowboys have signed former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith to bolster a depleted linebacker group that lost rookie Luke Gifford to a broken arm. Gifford was injured in the first half of a 44-21 win over the Rams on Sunday. Smith was the MVP of the 2014 Super Bowl with Seattle, returning an interception 69 yards for a touchdown and recovering a fumble in the Seahawks’ 43-8 rout of Denver.

— The Saints have acquired former Giants starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins off waivers. New York dropped Jenkins after he declined to acknowledge wrongdoing when he used offensive language in an exchange with a fan on social media.

— The league has suspended Broncos safety Kareem Jackson without pay for the final two regular season games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Jackson was arrested Sept. 19 for driving under the influence. The Broncos said Jackson informed the team of his DUI arrest and that it was reported to the NFL.

— The Lions are retaining general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia for the 2020 season despite the team’s 3-10-1 record. The Lions have dropped 10 of their last 11 since a 2-0-1 start and will carry a seven-game losing streak into Sunday’s game at Denver. Detroit hired both away from New England in the hopes of replicating the Patriots’ formula for success.

— The Giants have placed tight end Evan Engram on season-ending injured reserve after he missed the last five games with a foot injury. New York also said wide receiver David Sills had been signed off the practice squad and tackle Nate Wozniak was signed to the practice squad.

Lakers’ streak comes to an end

UNDATED (AP) — The Indiana Pacers have put an end to the Los Angeles Lakers’ seven-game winning streak.

Domantas Sabonis (doh-MAHN’-tahs sah-BOH’-nihs) scored 26 points and Malcolm Brogdon made a tiebreaking reverse layup with 36.4 seconds left to send the Pacers past the Lakers, 105-102. Brogdon finished with 16 points and six assists for Indiana, which trailed by four midway through the final period.

LeBron James had 20 points, nine rebounds and nine assists but missed a 3-pointer that would have given the Lakers the lead with 11.7 seconds to go. Los Angeles also missed two shots on its final possession while trying to force overtime.

The Pacers are 19-9 following their fourth straight win.

The Lakers ended a 14-game road winning streak and fell to 24-4, tying them with Milwaukee for the NBA’s best record.

NBA-SCHEDULE

Mavs halt Bucks’ streak

UNDATED (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAH’-nihs an-the-toh-KOOM’-poh) poured in 48 points and grabbed 14 rebounds Monday night, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Dallas Mavericks from ending the Milwaukee Bucks’ 18-game winning streak. And the Mavs didn’t even need their top player to pull off the victory.

Seth Curry and Kristaps Porzingis (KRIHS’-tahps pohr-ZIHN’-gihs) each scored 26 points to help the Mavericks hang on for a 120-116 triumph against the Bucks in Milwaukee. Dallas was 16 of 41 from 3-point range, including four 3s each by Curry and Porzingis.

The Mavericks were without Luka Doncic (DAHN’-chihch) because of a sprained right ankle, yet they still improved to 18-8 to stay atop the Southwest Division.

Antetokounmpo received little support as the Bucks lost for the first time since Nov. 8 at Utah. The winning streak was their longest since a franchise-record 20 consecutive victories by the 1970-71 championship team.

Checking out Monday’s other NBA action:

— The Rockets set a franchise record by overcoming a 25-point deficit to beat the Spurs, 109-107. Russell Westbrook scored 31 points and James Harden had 28 as Houston eclipsed the 23-point deficit it faced in a victory against Portland in January 1977. Harden made two free throws to extend the lead to 109-106 with 16.2 seconds left.

— The Thunder also pulled off a stunning comeback by crawling out of a 26-point hole in a 109-106 downing of the Bulls. Chris Paul hit five 3-pointers while scoring 19 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter. Paul also had nine rebounds and 10 assists for Oklahoma City, which trailed 55-29 midway through the second quarter after Chicago turned 12 Thunder turnovers into 26 points.

— Pascal Siakam (see-A’-kam) dropped in 33 points and Kyle Lowry registered his 110th double-double for the Raptors in a 133-113 rout of the Cavaliers. Lowry had 20 points and 11 assists to tie Antonio Davis for the third-most double-doubles in team history. Norman Powell finished with 26 points for the Raptors, who have won two straight at home since dropping three in a row in Toronto.

— Bradley Beal scored 15 of his 35 points while the Wizards were shooting a blistering 81% in the first quarter of a 133-119 victory at Detroit. Isaiah Thomas returned from a calf injury and scored 23 points for Washington, while Davis Bertans added 17. Derrick Rose and Markieff Morris each scored 22 points for Detroit, which played without injured stars Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

— The Grizzlies won for the fourth time in five games as rookie Ja Morant had 20 points and 10 assists to lead a 118-111 victory over the Heat. Memphis scored 11 straight points for a 115-107 lead on a Morant drive with 2:31 left. Jonas Valanciunas (YOH’-nuhs val-ehn-CHOO’-nuhs) finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds for Memphis.

— Damian Lillard scored 27 points, including a crucial three-point play with 26 seconds left as the Trail Blazers rallied past the Suns, 111-110. CJ McCollum had a team-high 30 points and helped the Blazers come back from a 16-point, first-half deficit. Kelly Oubre (OO’-bray) Jr. had 24 points for Phoenix, including a four-point play that put the Suns ahead, 110-108 with 32 seconds remaining.

NFL-SCHEDULE-SAINTS/COLTS

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees has added his name to one more NFL record.

Brees is the league’s all-time leader in touchdown passes after tossing four more in the Saints’ 34-7 thrashing of the Colts in New Orleans. The scoring strike that broke Peyton Manning’s record of 539 career touchdown passes came in the third quarter, when Brees hit tight end Josh Hill for a 5-yard score.

He came into the game already holding NFL records for completions and passing yards before helping the Saints improve to 11-3. Brees also broke a single-game record for completion percentage by connecting on 29 of his 30 attempts for 307 yards in a little more than three quarters.

The 6-8 Colts dropped their fourth in a row to eliminate themselves from playoff contention.

NFL-NEWS

Josh Gordon suspended again

UNDATED (AP) — Josh Gordon has received yet another indefinitely suspension from the NFL.

The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver has been punished for violating league policies on performance enhancers and substances of abuse. Gordon was reinstated by the NFL in August after having been suspended indefinitely in December 2018, missing the final three games of last season for violations of the league’s substance abuse policy.

This is the eighth time in his career Gordon has been suspended either by the league or his team.

In other NFL news:

— The Falcons will play their final two games without Takk McKinley after the third-year defensive end hurt his shoulder in an upset victory at San Francisco. McKinley left the game midway through the first quarter and did not return.

— The Jaguars tried to fine former defensive end Dante Fowler more than $700,000 for missing “mandatory” appointments with a team trainer or physician. An arbitrator recently ruled in favor of the NFLPA and negated the fines levied against Fowler and other Jaguars players in 2018. The arbitrator affirmed that under the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement teams cannot require rehabilitation or medical appointments at team facilities during the offseason.

Badgers Honored

A pair of Badgers have been named to the college football ESPN All-America team. Wisconsin Center Tyler Biadasz and RB Jonathon Taylor. Ohio State and LSU lead the way with three selections each, including Joe Burrow, LSU QB who won the Heisman Trophy Saturday night. Safety Antoine Winfield Jr., of Minnesota also made the team.

Big 10 Sports

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Marcus Carr scored a career-high 35 points and Daniel Oturu had 14 points and 13 rebounds for Minnesota in an 84-71 upset of third-ranked Ohio State. This was the first win for Gophers coach Richard Pitino against a top-five team. Oturu outworked Kaleb Wesson in the paint to win the battle of two of the Big Ten’s best big men with his sixth double-double of the season. Carr shot 12 for 17 from the floor after going 1 for 10 in a 20-point loss to Iowa earlier this week. Freshmen D.J. Carton led the previously unbeaten Buckeyes with 19 points off the bench.

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Haley Jones had 15 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in helping No. 1 Stanford beat Ohio State 71-52. Kiana Williams, Lexi Hull and Fran Belibi each added 13 points for the Cardinal, which ended a modest two-game losing streak to the Buckeyes. Belibi recorded a game-high eight rebounds. Janai Crooms scored 15 points to lead Ohio State.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Cam Mack had the first-ever triple-double for Nebraska, Dachon Burke scored 18 points and the Cornhuskers gave Fred Hoiberg his first Big Ten win with a 70-56 victory over Purdue. Mack had 11 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists as the Cornhuskers won for the first time in four games and less than 48 hours after a 96-90 overtime loss at Indiana. Trevion Williams led the Boilermakers with 18 points and 16 rebounds. Purdue’s Matt Haarms left the game in the second half with a head injury. Coach Matt Painter said it’s his understanding Haarms has a concussion.

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Ryan Young had career-highs with 25 points and 12 rebounds, Pat Spencer had 15 points and Northwestern overcame a sluggish offensive performance for an 72-54 victory over SIU-Edwardsville. Young, a redshirt freshman, was 11 for 15 from the field in topping his previous high of 19 points against Norfolk State last month.

NEW YORK (AP) — The 2020 Heisman Trophy race will start with a couple of clear front-runners in Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and fellow Georgian Trevor Lawrence of Clemson. That leaves plenty of room for a contender to emerge the way Joe Burrow did this year. AP College Football Writer Ralph Russo says that maybe instead of a quarterback from the state of Georgia, it will be Georgia’s quarterback. Or the next player to step into Lincoln Riley’s Heisman machine at Oklahoma.

MLB News

UNDATED (AP) — The Texas Rangers have added a two-time Cy Young Award winner to their starting rotation. The Indians have traded Corey Kluber to the Rangers for outfielder Delino DeShields and pitching prospect Emmanuel Clase. Kluber is coming off his worst season since 2012 as broken arm limited him to seven starts. He was 2-3 with a 5.80 ERA this year, one season after recording his first 20-win season. Kluber is 98-58 with a 3.16 ERA and 1,461 strikeouts in 1,341 2/3 innings over 208 major league games, including 203 starts. DeShields stole 24 bases last season while batting .249 with 32 RBIs.

 

A person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that longtime Giants ace Madison Bumgarner has accepted a five-year, $85 million contract with the Diamondbacks. Bumgarner was 9-9 with a 3.90 ERA in 34 starts this year, his first full season since 2016. The 2014 World Series MVP still needed to pass a physical to complete the contract.

NFL-SCHEDULE

The Packers were winners in their 200th meeting with the Bears as Aaron Jones ran for two scores and Davante Adams caught another in Green Bay’s 21-13 victory. Aaron Rodgers completed just 16 of 33 passes for 203 yards, but that was enough for the NFC North leaders to improve to 11-3. Adams finished with 103 yards on seven catches to help Green Bay drop the Bears to 7-7.

The Vikings stayed a game behind the Packers as Dan Bailey kicked four field goals and Ifeadi Odenigbo scored Minnesota’s second defensive touchdown in three games in a 39-10 thrashing of the Chargers. Mike Boone ran for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and Kirk Cousins threw for 207 yards and a TD for the 10-4 Vikings. Los Angeles led 10-9 midway through the second quarter before Minnesota scored 30 unanswered points.

Matt Ryan hit Julio Jones for a go-ahead, five-yard touchdown with 2 seconds left to send the Falcons past the Niners, 29-22. Jones was called short of the goal line with the Falcons trailing 22-17, but a replay showed the ball breaking the plane with the Jones in the air while being tackled by Jimmie Ward.

Russell Wilson threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks’ 30-24 victory over the Panthers.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs’ ninth consecutive win over the Broncos, 23-3.

Stephon Gilmore returned one of his two interceptions 64 yards for a score as the Patriots knocked off the Bengals, 34-13 to clinch an AFC playoff berth.

The Bills secured an AFC playoff berth as Josh Allen threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Kroft with 7:55 to play in their 17-10 victory at Pittsburgh.

The Texans grabbed control of the AFC South lead as Deshaun Watson threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-21 victory at Tennessee.

Carson Wentz capped a 75-yard scoring drive by tossing a four-yard TD pass to Greg Ward with 26 seconds left to secure the Eagles’ win over the Redskins, 37-27 and boost Philadelphia’s chances of making the playoffs as NFC East champions.

Philadelphia and Dallas remain tied for the NFC East lead after Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes and Ezekiel Elliott ran for two scores in a 44-21 win over the Rams.

The Raiders dropped their final scheduled game at the Oakland Coliseum as the Jaguars rallied for a 20-16 win against the Silver and Black.

The Browns’ playoff hopes are over after Baker Mayfield lost a battle of former Oklahoma quarterbacks and teammates, 38-24 at Arizona.

Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning threw two touchdowns in what might have been his final home start for the Giants, a 36-20 victory against the Dolphins.

The Buccaneers earned a 37-17 win over the Lions as Jameis Winston became the first player in NFL history to throw for 450 yards in consecutive games.

Big 12 Sports

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer didn’t play the second half of the Big 12 championship game against Oklahoma. He had initially stayed in the game after he bulled over an Oklahoma defender early in the second quarter Saturday. Brewer put his shoulder down and knocked nickel back Brendan Radley-Hiles back and to the ground. The referee announced that Radley-Hiles was being removed from the game then for a potential head injury. Brewer finished that series and played one more before Gerry Bohanon took over at quarterback. It was announced at halftime that Brewer was done for the game.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rhamondre Stevenson had a 5-yard touchdown run in overtime and No. 6 Oklahoma is likely going back to the playoff after a 30-23 win over No. 8 Baylor in the Big 12 championship game. The Sooners won their fifth Big 12 title in a row and 13th overall. This would be the fourth time in five years to get into the College Football Playoff. No. 5 Utah lost the Pac-12 title game before No. 4 Georgia lost 37-10 to No. 1 LSU in the SEC. Oklahoma beat surprising Baylor in a close game for the second time in four weeks.

UNDATED (AP) — Picking the four teams to play in the College Football Playoff will be easy for the selection committee. Who is No. 1? There could be a lot of discussion about that Saturday night in that resort hotel in Grapevine, Texas, where the 13-member committee meets. LSU made its case for the top spot, thumping Georgia in the Southeastern Conference title game. Ohio State finished with a kick against Wisconsin. Clemson dominated again. The field will be set Sunday at noon Eastern.

Big 10 Sports

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Justin Fields threw three touchdown passes and J.K. Dobbins ran for 172 yards and another score to help No. 2 Ohio State rally for a 34-21 victory over No. 10 Wisconsin. The undefeated Buckeyes won their third straight Big Ten title. Their 19th consecutive win also likely clinches their first playoff spot in three years. Ohio State was ranked No. 1 by the College Football Playoff selection committee last week. Wisconsin led 21-7 at the half but the Buckeyes pitched a second-half shutout and scored the final 27 points.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Anthony Cowan Jr. made a free throw with 2.1 seconds left and No. 3 Maryland erased a 15-point deficit in the second half to rally past Illinois 59-58 Saturday in the Big Ten opener for both teams. The 10-0 Terrapins didn’t lead after halftime until Cowan’s free throw but still matched their best start since winning 10 straight to open the 1998-99 season. Cowan collected a steal in the closing seconds of a tie game and was fouled in a scrum by guard Andres Feliz. Cowan made the first free throw and missed the second. Illinois failed to get a shot off in the remaining time.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State coach James Franklin has agreed to a new six-year contract with the school that runs through 2025. It adds three years on to his previous deal. Penn State’s Board of Trustees approved the contract, though financial terms were not immediately released. Since taking over in 2014, Franklin is 55-23, including 40-11 and three double-digit victory seasons in the last four years. The Nittany Lions are 10-2 this season and in position to go to a major bowl.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Kobe King scored a career-high 24 points and Wisconsin beat Indiana 84-64, handing the Hoosiers their first loss. Wisconsin, which snapped a three-game losing skid, built a 20-point halftime lead and stretched it to 30 with 12:09 to play. The Badgers shot 63% percent from the field and made six 3-pointers with just one turnover before halftime. King had 17 points in the first half and finished 10-of-15 shooting for the afternoon.
