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.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Tom Obarski made a 28-yard field goal with 2:49 left in Thursday night's preseason finale and the Bengals defense kept Indianapolis out of the end zone for a 9-6 victory.
Cincinnati won for the third time in four weeks, while the Colts, at 1-3, finished with their 12th consecutive non-winning preseason.
The game was marred by a fan who was injured at halftime. Colts chief operating officer Pete Ward said a woman was hit by falling debris when the retractable roof opened. Ward said she walked to a nearby first-aid station.
But with both teams' biggest stars sitting out, the game was devoid of excitement.
The Bengals took a 6-0 halftime lead on two Mike Nugent field goals.
Indy got inside the Cincinnati 10-yard line three times in the second half, but got only two field goals from Adam Vinatieri - before Obarski won it.
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Derrius Vick completed 13 of 16 passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns to help lead Ohio to a 45-28 victory over Idaho in the season opener for both teams on Thursday night.
Brendan Cope had 129 yards receiving on four catches, including a game long 65-yarder, and a touchdown. Daz'mond Patterson added 84 yards rushing and a score for the Bobcats.
Ohio scored the first three touchdowns, highlighted by a 29-yard interception return by Jovon Johnson, to take a 21-0 lead late in the first quarter. Idaho cut the lead to 38-28 late in the fourth on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Matt Linehan to Deon Watson, but that's as close as the Vandals would get.
Linehan finished with 285 passing, a touchdown, and two interceptions for the Vandals.
The game was just the fourth meeting all-time between the schools, and the first since 1976.
