Sports Minute: Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Roger Lewis Jr. made a spectacular catch to set up a winning 23-yard yard goal by Aldrick Rosas in overtime and the New York Giants responded from weeks of adversity and beat the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs 12-9 on a blustery cold day. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Giants (2-8) and sent the Chiefs (6-4) to their fourth loss in the last five games.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Andy Reid had such success coaching teams coming off bye weeks he had gone 16-2. That magic was gone against the Giants. New York beat Reid's sluggish and out-of-sync Kansas City Chiefs 12-9 in overtime. The week off did not cure what ails the Chiefs. Kansas City has lost four of their last five games after a 5-0 start. Reid put the blame squarely on his shoulders.

(AP) - The Big 12 already has a higher percentage of bowl-eligible teams than any other conference. The Big 12 has seven bowl games, and could make that eight out of 10. Plus, No. 3 Oklahoma needs an opponent for the conference's revived championship game. If No. 10 TCU wins at home against Baylor, the Horned Frogs will meet the Sooners again. Texas Tech has to win at Texas on Friday to become the Big 12's eighth bowl-eligible team, and maybe to save coach Kliff Kingsbury's job.

(AP) - This is the current state of No. 13 UCF football: Never been better on the field and preparing for the most anticipated home game the Knights have ever played. All the while, hanging over the program is the uncertainty that comes with having rising star coach who will most certainly be courted by traditional powers, offering huge contracts, Power Five prestige and _ in one case _ the chance to come home.

(AP) - Matt and Becca Hamilton have been curling together for more than a decade. Now they'll get a chance to do it at the Olympics. The siblings each qualified for the Winter Games at the U.S. trials this weekend. They are also hoping to qualify for the new mixed curling event in Pyeongchang. They both say they felt the pressure for Matt to get through after Becca qualified first.

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Donovan Jackson scored 26 points and Iowa State blew most of a huge lead before holding off Boise State 75-64 in Sunday's championship game at the relocated Puerto Rico Tip-Off. Nick Weiler-Babb had 10 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists to earn honors as the tournament's most valuable player for the Cyclones (3-2). Chris Sengfelder scored 20 points to lead the Broncos (4-1)

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Isaac Copeland had 19 of his 30 points in the first half and Nebraska opened up an early double-digit lead and defeated North Dakota 92-70. Nebraska (3-1) hit six of its first nine shots, taking a 15-5 lead on Copeland's layup with 15:13 left in the first half.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Baker Mayfield knows that the TV cameras are always on him. It comes with being the starting QB at Oklahoma, not to mention the Heisman Trophy favorite. But the downside is what happened on Saturday, when those cameras caught him cursing and making a lewd gesture toward the Kansas bench. He has since apologized for his actions.
