UNDATED (AP) -- Some of college football's top awards are being doled out today, two days before the Heisman Trophy presentation.
Florida State quarterback Jameis (JAYM'-ihs) Winston has been selected as the Walter Camp player of the year. The redshirt freshman has set FBS freshman records for yards passing (3,820) and touchdown passes (38), leading the top-ranked Seminoles to a 13-0 record and a berth in the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn. His 190.6 passer efficiency rating is tops in the country and on pace to set an NCAA record.
Fellow Heisman finalist Andre Williams of Boston College has won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back. The Heisman Trophy finalist became the first running back at the Football Bowl Subdivision level since 2008 to rush for 2,000 yards. He finished with 2,102 yards and 17 touchdowns to help the Eagles to seven wins and a bowl berth this season.
Oregon State junior Brandin Cooks has won the Biletnikoff (bih-LET'-nih-kahf) Award as the nation's most outstanding wide receiver. Cooks had 120 receptions for 1,670 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard has been recognized as the nation's best defensive back by receiving the Jim Thorpe Award.
Florida State freshman Roberto Aguayo has won the Lou Groza (GROH'-zah) Award as the nation's best place kicker.
Also in college football:
-- Florida coach Will Muschamp says freshman quarterback Max Staver is among six offensive players who have decided to transfer. Tight end Kent Taylor, fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter and offensive linemen Quinteze Williams, Trevon Young and Ian Silberman are changing schools as well following the school's first losing season since 1979. Their decisions came a little more than a week after Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis.
-- Weber State has chosen Utah assistant Jay Hill as its new head football coach. He replaces Jody Sears, who was fired after going just 4-19 in his two seasons. Hill was a full-time assistant for the Utes the last nine years, working as the special teams coordinator.
-- Texas coach Mack Brown isn't saying what he's going to do after the upcoming Alamo Bowl. There has been plenty of speculation that he would either resign or be fired. Brown says he has yet to talk with new Texas Athletic Director Steve Patterson and university president Bill Powers about his job. The Longhorns had a record of 8-4 this season.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Quarterback Jay Cutler is set to return to the Chicago Bears' lineup. Coach Marc Trestman says Cutler will start Sunday at Cleveland after missing the previous four games with a high left ankle sprain. Josh McCown, who played well in his absence, goes back to a reserve role.
Linebacker Lance Briggs participated on a limited basis and Trestman was not optimistic about him returning from his shoulder injury against the Browns.
UNDATED (AP) -- This has been another busy day of wheeling and dealing in Major League Baseball. Here are some of the headlines:
-- A person familiar with the negotiations says the Detroit Tigers have added depth to their bullpen by working out a one-year contract with Joba (JAH'-buh) Chamberlain. The hard-throwing, right-hander was 2-1 with one save and a career-high 4.93 ERA in 45 games for the New York Yankees last season. The converted starter was 23-14 with five saves with a 3.85 ERA in 260 games over seven seasons with the Yankees.
-- The Athletics have completed their trade with Baltimore that brought closer Jim Johnson to Oakland. The deal now sends minor league catcher David Freitas to the Orioles as the player to be named. Infielder Jemile Weeks also went to Baltimore in last week's swap.
-- Jordan Walden and the Atlanta Braves have avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $1.49 million, one-year contract. Walden was 4-3 with a 3.45 ERA this year with 54 strikeouts in 47 innings.
-- Tomo Ohka (TOH'-moh OH'-kah) has agreed to a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays after spending the last three years pitching in Japan. The 37-year-old right-hander compiled a 51-68 record for six major league teams.
-- A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that right-hander Roberto Hernandez and the Phillies have agreed to a one-year contract, pending a physical. Hernandez was 6-13 with a 4.89 earned run average for Tampa Bay last season.
-- The Cubs and Marlins worked out a deal. Chicago obtained outfield Justin Ruggiano from the Marlins for Brian Bogusevic (boh-guh-SEHV'-ihk).
-- Michael Morse has reached agreement on a one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- If things don't work out for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, he might have a future in big-league baseball. The Texas Rangers have selected the second-year signal caller in the Triple-A portion of baseball's winter draft from the Colorado Rockies.
Wilson played minor league baseball for parts of two seasons before becoming an NFL star, hitting .229 with five homers and 26 RBIs in Class-A.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Lakers guard Steve Blake will be out at least six weeks with a torn ligament in his right elbow. Blake was hurt Nov. 26th in a game against Washington. He says he won't undergo surgery and that he hopes to return this season. Blake is the third guard the team has lost as Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar (FAR'-mar) are both injured.
