BENGALS-TEXANS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Andy Dalton threw for 233 yards and a touchdown and A.J. Green had 121 yards receiving to give the Cincinnati Bengals a 22-13 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

The Bengals (7-3-1) led throughout, but Houston (5-6) cut the lead to 3 late in the third quarter before Cincinnati tacked on two field goals in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

Rookie Jeremy Hill scored on a 2-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter after an interception by Ryan Mallett for Cincinnati's only touchdown of the second half.

Mallett struggled in his second career start, finishing with 189 yards passing and often overthrowing open receivers. Houston's only touchdown came on a 60-yard interception return by Johnathan Joseph in the third quarter.

BROWNS-FALCONS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Brian Hoyer shook off three interceptions, leading the Cleveland Browns down the field in the final minute to set up Billy Cundiff's 37-yard field goal as time expired for a 26-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Taking advantage of the last of Hoyer's picks, the Falcons drove for Matt Bryant's 53-yard field goal with 44 seconds remaining to seize the lead.

But Hoyer completed four straight passes, the last of them to the Falcons 19, and spiked the ball with 5 seconds left. Cundiff trotted on and made his fourth field goal of the game for the Browns (7-4).

Atlanta (4-7), coming in improbably tied for first in the woeful NFC South, dropped to 0-7 against teams outside the division.

Isaiah Crowell scored a pair of touchdowns for the Browns, who also were bolstered by the return of Josh Gordon. He had eight catches for 120 yards.

T25-SACRED HEART-OHIO ST

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- D'Angelo Russell scored 32 points and Shannon Scott set a school record with 16 assists to lead 20th-ranked Ohio State to a 106-48 win against overmatched Sacred Heart on Sunday night.

Russell's total tied the second most for a freshman at Ohio State, trailing only Jared Sullinger's 40 points (along with 13 rebounds) against IUPUI in 2010.

Scott had 11 points to go with his assist total, which broke Aaron Craft's mark, while Jae'Sean Tate and Sam Thompson each had 12 points, Keita Bates-Diop 11 and Marc Loving 10. The Buckeyes (3-0) shot 57 percent from the field. Trey McDonald chipped in with 14 rebounds.

Filip Nowicki had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Pioneers (1-2), who had lost to UMass-Lowell 57-54 -- a team Ohio State pounded 92-55.

E ILLINOIS-CINCINNATI

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Troy Caupain scored 17 points to lead Cincinnati to a 54-49 victory over Eastern Illinois on Sunday night in the first game of the Emerald Coast Classic for both teams.

Trae Anderson made a pair of free throw attempts to tie it at 32. Shaquille Thomas answered with a field goal to give Cincinnati a 34-32 lead with 16:28 to play, and the Bearcats led the rest of the way. Octavius Ellis' layup stretched Cincinnati's lead to 51-42 with 2:21 remaining.

Caupain made 8 of 13 field goals. Ellis finished with seven points, 13 rebounds and four blocks.

Anderson and Reggie Smith scored 12 points, and Chris Olivier had 11 for the Panthers, who shot just 29.5 percent on 18-of-61 shooting from the field.

Cincinnati (3-0) will host N.C. Central next in the tournament, and Eastern Illinois (1-3) plays at Creighton on Tuesday night.

DAYTON-BOSTON COLLEGE

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Jordan Sibert had 20 points and Dyshawn Pierre added 16 as Dayton held off Boston College 65-53 in the third-place game at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Dayton (3-1) led for all but 50 seconds of the game, but had to scrap to hold onto their lead in the closing minutes.

The Flyers shot just 43 percent from the field, but forced 17 Boston College turnovers.

Eddie Odio led Boston College with 11 points. Olivier Hanlan added 10.

In addition to their turnovers, the Eagles (2-3) struggled shooting the ball throughout the game, finishing at just 34 percent.

Boston College hosts Marist on Dec. 1. Dayton hosts UIC on Saturday.

AKRON-SOUTH CAROLINA

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Noah Robotham had 16 points and Deji Ibitayo 15 as Akron outlasted South Carolina to take third place at the Charleston Classic with a 68-63 victory Sunday.

The Zips (3-1) defeated their second Power Five conference team in this event after opening with a 66-46 win over Southern Cal of the Pac-12 Conference here on Thursday. This time, their Southeastern Conference opponent played them tight throughout, erasing a 12-point second half lead when Laimonas Chatkevicius hit a foul shot to tie things at 55-all with 6:55 remaining.

But Kwan Cheatham had the go-ahead basket as the Zips closed the game on 10-5 run.

Akron had lost to South Carolina twice last year, once in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii on Christmas Day and then a few days later at the Gamecocks' Colonial Life Arena.

Sindarius Thornwell had 13 points to lead South Carolina (2-3).

YALE-KENT ST

KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Matt Townsend scored 12 points, including the go-ahead layup with 46 seconds left to help Yale beat Kent State 66-59 in the inaugural Men Against Breast Cancer Classic championship on Sunday.

Kris Brewer made a pair of free throws to give Kent State a 59-58 lead before Townsend's go-ahead shot. Justin Sears made four free throw attempts and Makai Mason hit a pair to cap the scoring.

Jack Montague scored 13 points, and Sears had 12 with nine boards for Yale (4-1). Armani Cotton scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers for the Bulldogs, who shot 50 percent from the field.

Jimmy Hall scored to give Kent State (4-1) its largest lead of the second half, 34-26 with 19:35 remaining. Montague's jumper tied it at 36 with 16:18 remaining, and then neither team led by more than four before the Bulldogs pulled away late. Hall finished with 22 points.

MLB-DEALS

UNDATED (AP) -- Free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval and the Boston Red Sox have agreed to a multiyear contract, a person with knowledge of the deal said.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the Red Sox had not announced the agreement.

Sandoval won the 2012 World Series MVP with San Francisco, and was pondering an offer from the Giants worth close to $100 million over five years, two people with knowledge of that proposal said. They also spoke on condition of anonymity because no deal had been announced.

Sandoval would join a big-spending Boston team that finished last in the AL East, one year after winning the World Series.

Elsewhere:

-- Kyle Seager has agreed to a $100 million, seven-year contract with Seattle, a person with knowledge of the deal had told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending a physical.

Seager is coming off his first All-Star game selection and his first Gold Glove. The 27-year-old hit .268 with a career-high 25 homers and 96 RBIs.

NFL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The NFL has a rare two-game schedule for Monday night football tonight.

The Ravens-Saints game in New Orleans was scheduled, but the Bills-Jets game is a late addition.

The later game had to be moved from Buffalo to Detroit after areas of western New York were buried under up to seven feet of snow last week. It's a home game for the 5-5 Bills without the home field advantage. The 2-8 Jets catch a break because they won't have to deal with the raucous Buffalo crowd. The tickets for the game were free and Bills president Russ Brandon says he heard 67,000 had been distributed.

The Bills won the first meeting of the season with the Jets 43-23.

The Ravens head to the Big Easy needing a win to keep pace in the tight AFC North. All four teams in the division have a .600 winning percentage or better. The Ravens bring with them long-time Saints nemesis Steve Smith who used to face New Orleans twice a year when he was with Carolina. Smith has caught 10 touchdown passes against New Orleans to go along with 99 receptions and 1,493 yards.

The Saints head into the game with a 4-6 record, which is good for first in the NFC South. They've lost two in a row.

NFL-BROWNS-MANZIEL

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Police say a Browns fan who says he wanted to give Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') "a hug" was struck by the quarterback's entourage at a downtown hotel Friday and was left with a swollen eye and lip.

Chris Conos told police he was assaulted by "Johnny Football and his entourage." The 33-year-old fan said he and his girlfriend approached Manziel while waiting for an elevator and he told the first-round draft pick: "I'm the biggest Browns fan ever. I love you. I want to give you a hug."

Conos said he took one step toward Manziel and was punched by a man listed on the report as Dana Kirk. Conos contends he was struck several times in the face and "pushed and attacked" by a group of unidentified men who were with Manziel. Kirk said Conos tried to assault Manziel

PRO FOOTBALL-HALL OF FAME-BENSON GIFT

CLEVELAND (AP) -- New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson has pledged $11 million in donations to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The Hall has Benson's two gifts, saying the contributions are the largest by any individual in the institution's 51-year history.

The Hall says $10 million will be earmarked to the immediate renovation of adjacent Fawcett Stadium, which will be renamed Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. Benson also pledged $1 million to the Hall of Fame Village, which includes a residence for Hall of Famers and NFL players.

NBA-CAVALIERS-JAMES

CLEVELAND (AP) -- With the Cavaliers on a four-game losing streak and failing to live up to enormous expectations, LeBron James offered a critical analysis of his own game. He says he "stinks" and he's not doing his job. After much off-season hype following the addition of James and Kevin Love, Cleveland is off to just a 5-7 start to the season.

T25 BASKETBALL POLL

UNDATED (AP) -- Kentucky has strengthened its hold on the top spot in The Associated Press college basketball poll this week. The 5-0 Wildcats got 62 of the 65 first-place votes after three wins including one against then No. 5 Kansas.

The other three first-place votes went to Wisconsin, which checks in at No. 2 this week. Arizona, Duke and North Carolina round out the top five. Louisville, Texas, Virginia, Wichita State and Gonzaga are the rest of the top 10.

TOP 25 WOMENS BASKETBALL POLL

UNDATED (AP) -- South Carolina takes over as the new No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll for the first time in school history.

The Gamecocks received 21 first-place votes, edging Notre Dame for the top spot. Dawn Staley's team is headed to the Bahamas to play in the Junkanoo Jam over Thanksgiving where they will face Wisconsin in their first game as No. 1 on Thursday.

The Irish garnered 12 first-place ballots and moved up to second. UConn, which held the top spot for 22 straight weeks, drops to third after losing in overtime at Stanford last Monday. Tennessee and the Cardinal round out the first five.
