MIAMI (AP) -- Fans attending the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl also witnessed an aerial show, some extra football and a Pier 6 brawl.

Several fights broke out between Memphis and BYU players moments after the Tigers secured a 55-48 double-overtime win over the Cougars. It took several minutes for order to be restored, but not before several punches had been thrown and tempers flared. The brawl involved many players from both teams after BYU's Christian Stewart threw an interception on the final play.

As for the game, Paxton Lynch accounted for seven touchdowns, including a scoring pass to Roderick Proctor in the second overtime to win it. Jake Elliott made a 55-yard field goal to force the second OT. Lynch threw for four scores and ran for three more as the Tigers secured their first 10-win season since 1938.

BYU finished 8-5.


UNDATED (AP) -- Two people familiar with the negotiations tell the Associated Press that Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has tentatively agreed to become Colorado State's next football coach. Bobo would take over for Jim McElwain, who left for Florida after leading the Rams to one of their best regular seasons in program history. Bobo has been on Mark Richt's staff since 2001 and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2007.


UNDATED (AP) -- Johnny Football is now Johnny Benched.

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') has been ruled out of the team's season finale against Baltimore after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to Carolina. It was the second start of the season for the well-hyped rookie, who replaced Brian Hoyer a few days before the Browns' 30-0 loss to Cincinnati on Dec. 14.

Hoyer will start the season finale Sunday if he can recover from a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday's loss to Carolina. If he can't go, rookie Connor Shaw will become the second rookie quarterback to start for Cleveland this season.

In other NFL news:

-- Chicago quarterback Jimmy Clausen will miss the season finale against Minnesota because of a concussion, moving Jay Cutler back into the starting role. Cutler was benched in favor of Clausen for Sunday's loss to Detroit.

-- Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he's leaning toward starting rookie quarterback Logan Thomas in Arizona's regular-season finale. Arians insists the decision is not a reflection on how Ryan Lindley played in Sunday's 35-6 home loss to the Seahawks.

-- Court documents unsealed today reveal a woman alleges former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald sexually assaulted her following a night of drinking and after she injured her head in a fall by his swimming pool. The woman told authorities she has no memory of the sexual encounter, which police say occurred at McDonald's home Dec. 14, a few hours after the 49ers lost in Seattle. No charges have been filed, and the San Jose police continue to investigate.

-- A dozen people are recovering after they were injured by an indirect lightning strike in the parking lot at Raymond James Stadium following Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers. Rescue crews took seven people to the hospital. All were in stable condition when they left for St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa.


UNDATED (AP) -- Minnesota Twins pitcher Phil Hughes has agreed to a five-year, $58 million contract that adds $42 million in guaranteed money from 2017-19. The 28-year-old right-hander went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA and led the majors among qualifying pitchers with an 11.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He had been scheduled to make $8 million each of the next two seasons as part of a $24 million, three-year contract he signed as a free agent after leaving the New York Yankees.


-- San Francisco Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro (SKOO'-tah-roh) has undergone back surgery that could end his career. Giants general manager Brian Sabean (SAY'-bee-ihn) says Scutaro had the fusion procedure performed by Dr. Michael Wang in Miami on Friday to alleviate the troublesome area at level L-2/L-3 of his spine. It will be four-to-six months before doctors determine whether Scutaro can play baseball again.

-- Free agent reliever Sergio Romo has finalized a $15 million, two-year contract with the Giants, keeping a key member of bullpen from three championship runs. The 31-year-old right-hander has spent all seven of his big league seasons with San Francisco, winning titles in 2010, `12 and this year. He went 6-4 with a 3.72 ERA with 23 saves in 64 outings last season.


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Monday's top-25 men's basketball schedule began with No. 21 Ohio bouncing back from Saturday's eight-point loss to North Carolina.

Reserve guard Kam Williams scored 18 points and the Buckeyes went on a 26-3 run in the first half to beat Miami-Ohio 93-55. Marc Loving had 16 points and D'Angelo Russell added 15 points and eight assists for the 10-2 Buckeyes.


UNDATED (AP) -- Make it three weeks in a row that Kentucky has been a unanimous pick as No. 1 in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll. The 12-0 Wildcats got all 65 first-place votes. Kentucky solidified its spot as the top team in the land with a crushing 83-44 win over UCLA Saturday in which the Wildcats rattled off the first 24 points in the game.

Duke, Arizona and Louisville held onto the next three spots.

The Cardinals have a showdown with Kentucky in Louisville on Saturday.
