OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens remain in first place in the AFC North, but after back-to-back losses that saw the offense struggle, the man in charge of that offense has been fired. Cam Cameron had been offensive coordinator since the start of the 2008 season. Quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell will take over.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL is canceling more games. The lockout had already forced the cancelation of 422 regular-season games, and the league today scapped games through Dec. 30. However, since that's only 16 more days of the season, it's being seen by some as a sign of hope that a deal could get done.

UNDATED (AP) -- Indiana is No. 1 for a sixth straight week in The Associated Press college basketball poll. The Hoosiers are again followed by Duke, Michigan and Syracuse. Florida and Louisville switched places at fifth and sixth. The only Top 25 team in action tonight is No. 15 Georgetown. They host the Longwood Lancers from Farmville, Va., in the nation's capital.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- After emerging as one of the Reds' most consistent run producers last season, Ryan Ludwick has decided to stick around in Cincinnati. The left fielder has signed a two-year, $15 million deal that includes a mutual option for the 2015 season. Ludwick batted .275 with 26 homers and 80 RBIs in 125 games last season.

UNDATED (AP) -- Western Kentucky has hired Bobby Petrino as its new football coach. Petrino was fired by Arkansas in April for what the school described as a "pattern of misleading" behavior following a motorcycle accident that ultimately revealed he'd been having an affair. He replaces Willie Taggart, who left WKU Saturday to become South Florida's coach.
