FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jarret Doege threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Esdale with 2 minutes left and West Virginia beat TCU 20-17. The win to end coach Neal Brown’s first season kept the Horned Frogs from getting Bowl eligible. The game-winning drive by West Virginia was extended by two defensive penalties. Both teams are 5-7.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Sam Ehlinger passed for two touchdowns and ran for another to send Texas to a 49-24 win over Texas Tech. The win means the Longhorns will at least finish a disappointing season with a winning record. Texas fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter before Ehlinger and the Longhorns came roaring back. Ehlinger scored his first rushing touchdown in five games, and later connected on scoring strikes of 75 yards to Devin Duvernay and 26 yards to Jake Smith.

NEW YORK (AP) — Cameron McGriff scored 15 points as Oklahoma State routed Mississippi 78-37 in the championship game of the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center. Yor Anei, who was named the tournament’s MVP, finished with 14 points, nine rebounds and four blocks for Oklahoma State (7-0).

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Keith Duncan kicked a 48-yard field goal with one second left, giving No. 19 Iowa a 27-24 win over Nebraska. The Hawkeyes overcame a sluggish second half offensively to beat the Cornhuskers for a fifth straight year and second year in a row on a late field goal. Nebraska scored twice in the third quarter to erase a 14-point deficit. The Huskers failed to get bowl eligible for a third straight year.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Marcus Zegarowski scored a career-high 32 points on 12-for-18 shooting, and Creighton beat No. 12 Texas Tech 83-76 in overtime. Ty-Shon Alexander had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Creighton in the consolation game of the Las Vegas Invitational.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Myles Powell scored 19 of his 24 points after halftime to help No. 13 Seton Hall beat Iowa State 84-76 in the fifth-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis. Sandro Mamukelashvili added 18 points for the Pirates, who finally took control with a 12-2 second-half run. Rasir Bolton scored 20 points for the Cyclones.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have changed kickers once again by signing veteran Kai Forbath. He replaces Nick Folk, who was released one day after he reportedly underwent an emergency appendectomy, and less than a month after he signed with the team. Forbath becomes the Patriots’ fourth kicker this season, succeeding Stephen Gostkowski, Mike Nugent and Folk.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals cornerback Josh Shaw has been suspended indefinitely for betting on NFL games on multiple occasions this season, the first time in more than 35 years a player has been banned for gambling. The NFL says its investigation found no evidence that Shaw used inside information or compromised any games. The league also says it found no evidence that teammates, coaches or other players were aware of Shaw betting on games.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio still isn’t saying who will start at quarterback against the Los Angeles Chargers tomorrow, even though he said rookie Drew Lock played well while taking three-fourths of the snaps with the starters at practice this week. Fangio says he still wants to look at the practice film of Lock and Brandon Allen, who has gone 1-2 as Denver’s starting QB since Joe Flacco went on injured reserve after eight games with a neck injury.

NEW YORK (AP) — Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving has begun working on the court but will sit out at least one more game because of an injured right shoulder. Irving already has missed eight straight games, including yesterday’s 112-107 victory over the Boston Celtics. He averaged a team-high 28.5 points in 11 games before he was hurt.
