OXON HILL, Md. — Bud Selig oversaw baseball during a time of transformation and turmoil — wild cards and a ballpark boom, the cancellation of a World Series and the Steroids Era. For much of his reign, though, there was one constant: those first-place Atlanta Braves, built by John Schuerholz.
The former commissioner and the longtime general manager met up again Sunday, both elected by an overwhelming margin to the Hall of Fame.
Even so, Selig didn’t see it as a sure thing.

CHAPECO, Brazil — The president of Brazilian football team Chapecoense was buried Sunday as fans paid their final tributes, trying to put behind them the worst moment in the club’s history.

In the end, true chaos never came to college football this season. Four teams that started near the top of the College Football Playoff rankings will play for the national championship.
Alabama will face Washington in one semifinal and Clemson meets Ohio State in the other. None of them were ranked any lower than sixth since the selection committee started ranking teams in early November.
Even after a wild finish to championship Saturday, selection Sunday went pretty much as expected.

OXON HILL, Md. — Andrew McCutchen, Chris Sale, Miguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander could be available for the right price.
As baseball teams gathered for the start of the winter meetings Monday, star players were dangled along with the usual crop of free agents.
“When clubs take a dramatic change in direction or even a subtle one, that type of player can become available — although often it’s just talk,” New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday. “We’ll see what happens.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — With a rookie quarterback and one of the NFL’s best defenses, the Denver Broncos were content to play conservatively at Jacksonville.
It was the perfect formula against the self-destructing Jaguars.
Bradley Roby returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown, and the defending Super Bowl champions beat the mistake-prone Jaguars 20-10 on Sunday and gained ground in the AFC playoff picture.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The top of the AP Top 25 looks set for a major shuffle, from a new No. 1 to another team that could make a big jump for the second straight week.
Four Top 10 teams — top-ranked Kentucky, No. 3 North Carolina, No. 6 Virginia and No. 7 Xavier — lost this week for the first time. That has reigning national champion Villanova set to climb from No. 2 to top Monday’s new poll, while No. 9 Baylor added another marquee win to a nonconference resume that will stand up against anyone come March.

NASSAU, Bahamas — The return of Tiger Woods was more about the big picture than any of his big numbers.
And that started with the sight of that red shirt on Sunday.
Woods grumbled about three more double bogeys in the final round of the Hero World Challenge. Considering how badly he has felt in the 15 months since he last played, he still was able to keep it in perspective.
