Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Bobcats Rally, Win Battle of the Bricks

 OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - Josiah Yazdani kicked a 29-yard field goal as time expired to lift Ohio to a 24-21 win over Miami (OH) in "The Battle of the Bricks" Tuesday night.
 
   Jordan Reid hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass from Derrius Vick with 11:28 left to tie the 91st meeting between the teams at 21-21.
 
   Yazdani missed a 42-yard attempt with under two minutes left. Miami (2-10, 2-6 Mid-American) drove to the Ohio 45 yard line, but the drive stalled and the RedHawks sailed the ensuing punt into the end zone for a touch back.
 
   After running for a first down at the Miami 33, Vick found Chase Cochran for 18 yards and Brendan Cope for 38 yards for a first down at the Miami 11, where Yazdani booted the game-winner.
 
   The Bobcats (6-6, 4-4 MAC) now have won eight of the past nine meetings.

Cats Escape with Win

  ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Maurice Ndour scored 21 points with 12 rebounds as Ohio held off Arkansas-Pine Bluff 69-60 on Tuesday night.
 
   Ndour hit 7 of 12 shots and was a perfect 7-for-7 at the foul line as Ohio (2-1) scored 21 points at the line in the win.
 
   Marcel Mosley led Arkansas-Pine Bluff (1-5) with 20 points and the Golden Lions hung close, trailing just 30-28 at halftime.
 
   Ghiavonni Robinson (13 points) provided some fire during a 9-0 run just after halftime - nailing a 3-pointer and then a dunk as the Golden Lions went up by five.
 
   But Javarez Willis (16 points) hit one of his four 3-pointers with 11:42 to play that gave Ohio the lead 46-45. Though the Bobcats were often tied they never trailed again, and finally broke clear in the last 4:22 on free throws by Ryan Taylor and Ndour and a layup by Willis.

Ralph Wilson Stadium Hot to Trot

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon expects Ralph Wilson Stadium to be "100 percent operational" in time to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
 
   Brandon provided the update Tuesday after a tour of the stadium uncovered some minor damage from a severe lake-effect storm that dumped more than 6 feet of snow on the Buffalo region last week.
 
   The problems ranged from burst pipes, to leakage to parts of the wall separating the field from the stands being damaged during the snow-removal process. A portion of the wall of the Bills' practice facility caved in, but has already been repaired.
 
   Brandon says engineers found no structural issues to the stadium itself.
 
   The Bills (6-5) beat the New York Jets 38-3 in a "home" game at Detroit on Monday night.
